Abstract [en]

The composition and amount of insect reamins in archaeological deposits is dependent on both what insect species that is depositet and the preservation of the remains. It is therefore important to understand how different insects are preserved in archaeological deposits. Results are presented in the article from a taphonomical study with analysis of recently dead insect remains in two wells and a stable floor, in south central Sweden. These data where compared with the results from Iron Age deposits. These data yield clues regarding the deposition of insect remains in prehistorical rural sites.
