Abstract [en]

Three Iron Age wells in south-central Sweden were studied for their content of insect reamins. The wells are dated from Roman Iron Age to the Migration Period (ca. AD 0-550). The wells are situated within a rural situation of two farmsettlements. In general the environmental sutrrounding the settlements is interpreted as diverse cultural landscape including pasturres, cultivated fields, and forested areas. The Mutual Climatic Range Method (MCR), used for interpreating the thermal environment based on the beetle record, suggests a slightly warmer summer temperature and a somewhat colder mean winter temperature than today in the study area.
