Monday 2nd of July, we are finally in the field again, dealing with the history of the deserted farm Fjäle in Ala parish, Gotland, Sweden. Some 30 participants from abroad will be divided into different groups to carry out excavations of Viking Age and Medieval houses at the farm.
The aim of this year's excavations is to get a better understanding about settlement at the farm, giving us a better idea of population size, subsistence and also land use. The trenches are laid out, the equipment on site, and the weather is nice. All prepared for an interesting excavation.
During the 6 weeks of excavations, we will keep you updated of our mission, both here and on our Facebook page.
