Ett kokgropsfält från äldre järnålder: Öland - Kalmar län, Solberga 1:103, Björkviken, Köping socken

Abstract [en]

This report presents the results from an archaeological excavation at Solberga 1:103 just east of Borgholm, Öland, carried out by Kalmar county museum during three weeks in August and September 2007. The area is rich in prehistoric remains, many of which dating from the Bronze Age and early Iron Age. A trial excavation in 2006 revealed the presence within the appointed area of hearths and cooking pits, and it was suggested that these constituted a continuation towards the northwest of the Bronze Age/early Iron Age settlement located some 150 m to the southeast and partly excavated in 1990.The excavation in 2007 resulted in a large number of sunken features, mainly clusters of hearths and cooking pits. The number of finds is very low, and post-built structures such as houses could not be detected. The interpretation suggested here is that the remains represent a specific kind of probably public activity, not necessarily connected to a dwelling site but characterised by the intensive use of fire in hearths and pits. Similar sites have been found in large parts of northern Europe, often very extensive and most often dated to the late Bronze Age and early Iron Age. The close proximity in this case to the large Bronze Age cairn Blå rör might be of importance in the understanding of the site. Five radiocarbon dates from the site suggest that it was in use mainly during the early Iron Age, although a certain chronological depth of the site could also be detected. Three of the dates fall at around 200-1 cal BC, one date at c cal AD 1-200 and finally one date at c cal AD 550-650.
