  • Grænser i landskabet - Sten- og jorddiger

    • Authors: Tenna R. Kristensen
      Pages: 11 - 24
      Abstract: The stone and earth banks belong to
      a category
      of archaeological evidence,
      which can contribute to our understanding
      of the cultural landscape. Often,
      however, they do not receive the
      attention they deserve. They are spread
      across the agricultural landscape like a
      fine mesh and may provide information
      about agricultural systems, administrative
      borders, and previous land ownership.
      Most of the stone and earth banks
      were erected during the reorganisation
      the villages’ lands towards the end of the
      18th century but may also be older.
      Sønderjylland has worked with the
      stone and earth banks for many years to
      preserve this category of evidence – increasingly
      so, they are in danger of disappearing
      completely due to modern intensive
      agricultural cultivation methods.
      Studies in five areas of eastern Denmark
      have shown that 70 % of the banks shown
      on maps from 1884 had disappeared in
      1981 (Bang 2009, 6). In this way, important
      pieces have been lost to the understanding
      of the cultural landscape. The
      purpose of this article is to draw attention
      to the fact that the still preserved
      banks in many cases are the last and only
      visible evidence of abandoned farms, villages
      and older field and cultivation systems.
      The purpose is also to investigate
      the extent to which the banks appearing
      on historical maps can be found in the
      archaeological excavations.

  • Zwei "Ziegelwracks" in der Kieler Aussenförde'

    • Authors: Philipp Grassel
      Pages: 25 - 38
      Abstract: In 2015 and 2016, two unknown wrecks –
      the MALIK and the 2-Anker Wrack – were
      found in the Kiel Fjord. Both sites were
      investigated by short surveys during 2015,
      2016, and 2018. The large
      amount of bricks
      covering the wrecks is characteristic of
      both sites.
      This article gives an overview of past
      and current research on the wrecks. Additionally,
      an initial interpretation of the
      context of the wrecks is suggested including
      a possible research project. From the
      author's point of view, both wrecks were
      once most likely small wooden sailing
      ships for commercial purposes; such vessels
      were very common on the coasts of the
      Baltic Sea and the North Sea.
      Due to the lack of usable archaeological
      data, a detailed dating of the wrecks is not
      yet possible. Comparative analyses of the
      anchors and the visible, structural parts of
      the wrecks roughly date wrecks to the period
      between the 1830s and the first half of
      the 20th century.

  • Bjerndrup - et skattefund med bebyggelse fra vikingetiden

    • Authors: Søren Brøgger, Anders Hartvig
      Pages: 39 - 50
      Abstract: In the early part of 2018, three metal detectorists
      discovered several Viking Age
      silver coins on a field near the village of
      Bjerndrup in the southeastern part of Jutland,
      Denmark. Local archaeologists were
      contacted and in cooperation with the
      landowner they were able to excavate the
      area during two campaigns in 2018 and
      2019 – excavations in which the original
      finders took part with their metal detectors.
      The excavations revealed 224 pieces
      of silver: 150 coins or fragments of coins,
      fourteen silver ingots and sixty pieces
      of hack silver. The coins were Kufic, Anglo-
      Saxon, Frankish, and Danish, from the
      emporia Ribe and Hedeby. The date of the
      younger coins suggests that the hoard was
      buried not long after 910 AD.
      The removal of the topsoil revealed
      a longhouse, three smaller buildings
      and nineteen sunken-feature-buildings
      (SFBs). The longhouse was 14C-dated to
      c. 945 – 993 AD, while some of the other
      buildings appear to be a bit older. The SFBs
      contained spindle whorls and loom weights
      indicating textile production. One SFB
      stood out as it contained e. g. glass beads, a
      miniature silver sword, and a Thor’s hammer
      The combination of coins and especially
      the presence of coins from both Hedeby and
      Ribe sheds new light on early Danish coinage
      and trading between Ribe and Hedeby.

  • Damhus-skatten - en foreløbig præsentation af en Ribeudmøntning fra
           tidlig 800-årene

    • Authors: Claus Feveile
      Pages: 51 - 66
      Abstract: The article presents the main results of the
      analysis of the hoard from Damhus. The
      consists of 262 coins exclusively. It was
      found during a metal detecting campaign
      just outside Ribe, southwestern Jutland, and
      subsequently excavated during the autumn
      of 2018. Only two types of coins were represented
      in the hoard; both types belong
      to Malmer’s so-called combination group 4
      (KG 4). The vast majority of the coins, i. e. 258,
      belong to the type face/forward-looking deer,
      while the last four coins belong to the type
      ship/forward-looking deer.
      An analysis of the dies used on the hoard’s
      coins as well as the already known c. fourteen
      coins showed that thirty-six dies were used
      for the reverse design and fifty-seven for the
      obverse design. Presumably, hundreds of
      thousands of these coins were struck over a
      long period of time, allowing minor variations
      of the main type to evolve.
      It is particularly surprising that the type
      ship/forward-looking deer appears to have
      been a halvpenning (halfpence).
      The coins are seen as an immediate continuation
      of the frequently found type Wodan/
      Monster sceattas, which were minted by the
      king until the beginning of the 9th century in
      Ribe and possibly also in the other large emporia
      of the 8th century, i. e. Åhus in Scania
      and Groß Strömkendorff in Mecklenburg.

  • Kosel, neue Informationen zu einem altbekannten wikingerzeitlichen

    • Authors: Valerie Elena Palmowski
      Pages: 67 - 87
      Abstract: between
      the landscapes of Angeln and
      Schwansen. In the Viking Age it was part
      of the border region between the Saxonian
      and the Slavic cultures in the South and
      the Scandinavian culture in the North. In
      the context of a project supported by the
      Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, ›Frühgeschichtliche
      und mittelalterliche Besiedlung
      von Angeln und Schwansen‹, two Viking
      Age settlements (9th/10th century) and
      a burial site (c. 930 – 975 AD) have been
      excavated between 1983 and 1993.
      In 2019, the author carried out the first
      analysis of the highly fragmented human
      skeletal remains from the burial site of Kosel-
      Ost for her dissertation project within
      the SFB 1070 RessourcenKulturen, project
      B 06. The following article summarises
      the first results: in Kosel-Ost both men
      and women, as well as children and adults
      were buried. Based on the archaeological
      record few child burials had been identified
      but could now be complemented with
      additional cases. An evaluation and contextual
      classification of individual burials,
      based solely on the archaeological data, is
      complex for Kosel-Ost. The consideration
      of singular aspects, such as the presence or
      absence of burial mounds, is not sufficient,
      to approach the complex burial reality. A
      bioarchaeological approach that combines
      archaeological and osteological data offers
      new perspectives.
      An assessment of dental pathologies revealed
      that varying dietary habits regarding
      carbohydrate enriched foods possibly
      existed. This was demonstrated by the occurrence of dental caries which is limited to and significantly correlates with individuals buried under burial mounds. Furthermore, differences in burial customs were re-evaluated on the basis of the osteological results.

  • Die nordfriesischen Inseln im 8. Jahrhundert.

    • Authors: Bente Sven Majchczack, Tina Wunderlich, Dennis Wilken
      Pages: 89 - 104
      Abstract: During the recent years, the North Sea Harbour
      Project investigated Early Medieval settlement
      sites (7th – 11th century) on the North
      Frisian Island of Föhr (Germany). The extensive
      fieldwork combined geophysical and
      geoarchaeological surveys as well as archaeological
      excavations to uncover the harbour
      locations as well as the settlement sites. The
      paper presents results from the harbour and
      trading sites of Goting and Witsum. The sites
      are located in small inlets along the edge of
      the high pleistocene cores of the islands with
      access to the low marshlands, beaches or tidal
      creeks. The geoarchaeological surveys show
      a clear maritime impact and navigability of
      the waterways, providing natural harbours
      for the settlements. The nearby ring fortress
      Borgsumburg housed a military elite and
      provided security and control for the trading
      sites. The prospections and excavations revealed
      a distinctive settlement pattern dominated
      by pit houses with traces of craft activities
      such as glass and amber working and a
      large-scale textile production. Remains from
      smithing workshops prove the construction
      or repair of boats. Numerous finds of imported
      goods from the core Frisian area, the
      Frankish empire, and Scandinavia indicate a
      strong connection to the cross-regional trade
      routes along the North Sea coasts. Especially
      the analysis of glass objects shows that the
      North Frisian Islands were strongly embedded
      in the North Sea trade networks of the
      8th and 9th centuries with connections towards
      the Rhineland as well as the important
      emporium of Ribe (South Denmark).

  • Beboelse i landskabet - en analyse af bebyggelsernes placering i
           landskabet fra jernalder til middelalder i området omrking Eltang Vig

    • Authors: Casper Marienlund
      Pages: 105 - 118
      Abstract: This paper examines the location of the
      excavated farms and settlements in the
      landscape surrounding the tunnel valley
      of Eltang Vig from the Iron Age to the
      Middle Ages.
      The main bulk of the archaeological
      evidence comes from several campaigns
      at the archaeological sites of Banggård
      II, Eltang, and Marielyst from 2014
      to 2019, and their connection to older
      excavated sites.
      The landscape in this area was affected
      significantly during the ice age. The
      terrain changes rapidly, and the landscape
      is characterised by high hills and
      tunnel valleys, closely connected to The
      Little Belt. The large, investigated area
      of approximately 123 ha offers a great
      opportunity to study the archaeological
      area and to focus on the location of the
      buildings in the landscape on a greater
      scale. Although large parts of the landscape
      have not been archaeologically examined,
      the survey indicates that some
      areas were more densely populated than
      others during different periods of time,
      which could indicate that the role of the
      landscape and the use of it changed over
      time, due to aspects such as local agriculture,
      trade, and security.

  • Jernalderofringer fra Stavsager Høj ved Fæsted - en foreløbig
           præsentation af deponeringer og kontekster

    • Authors: Lars Grundvad
      Pages: 119 - 138
      Abstract: In the winter of 2017/2018, a team of
      archaeologists discovered a
      previously unknown site which contained
      several weapon deposits roughly
      dating to the period AD 150 – 550.
      Based on the data they had collected it
      was possible to narrow down four concentrations,
      of which three consisted
      of various types of weapons.
      Museum Sønderskov has since excavated
      these three sites with financial support
      from the Danish Department of
      Castles and Culture
      The results are exciting. Not only
      has it been possible to excavate and rescue
      the weapon deposits from ploughing
      it has also been possible
      to establish
      that a multi-phased
      well-founded longhouse was used for
      multiple depositions which actually
      consisted of more than just weapons.
      Equally interesting were three larger
      dark culture layers where especially
      one revealed the remains of an intense
      destruction of copper alloy artifacts
      such as belt fittings, brooches, parts of
      drinking horns etc.
      This paper is a preliminary presentation
      of the results of the surveys
      which have been conducted at this
      newly found site. Furthermore, it is a
      presentation of the theory that these
      deposits are part of the pre-Christian
      rituals carried out in a region that today
      is named after the god Frey. A series of
      depositions where the gold hoard »The
      Fæsted Hoard« from the 10th century is
      the so far youngest.

  • Das "Nydamboot" im Museum: Inwertsetzungen und
           Präsentationen im Wandel der Zeit

    • Authors: Tobias Schade
      Pages: 139 - 157
      Abstract: value, however, is not inherent but culturally
      constructed and is closely related to
      practices of valorisation. These objects, and
      also the past itself, may become socio-cultural
      ›resources‹ (according to the definition
      of the Collaborative Research Centre
      SFB 1070 ResourceCultures). As such
      they have meanings for museums, societies,
      and social groups.
      These meanings can also become evident
      in the way the objects are presented
      in museums, in the changing presentations
      through time, and in the way they
      are received.
      The focus of this article is the process
      of musealisation and on exhibition studies
      using the example of the ›Nydamboot‹ exhibited
      in Schleswig (Germany).
      Based on various sources from archives
      and newspapers as well as interviews with
      experts, this contribution discusses how
      the archaeological find in the bog became
      the present exhibit ›Nydamboot‹, and how
      meanings related to the boat changed
      through time and became apparent in
      its exhibitions in Flensburg, Kiel, and
      the ›Nydamboot‹ is not only
      an archaeological
      object or an exhibit, it is
      also a historical witness, a creator of identity,
      and a symbol.

  • Mellem angler og jyder ved Kassø

    • Authors: Per Ethelberg
      Pages: 159 - 177
      Abstract: After 150 km of trial trenches and two years
      of excavations, we can now begin to see
      the contours of the settlement pattern in
      the Roman Iron Age at Kassø. Three main
      phases may be recognised in the habitation
      each dominated by different types of houses
      as well as different burial
      customs. Taken
      together, they present a significantly more
      nuanced picture than we might otherwise
      recognise when our studies are based on
      small-scale excavations only covering a minor
      part of the whole.

  • Ønlev-kvinden - en højstatus kvindegrav med et kirurgisk redskab fra
           yngre romersk jernalder (225-250 e.Kr.)

    • Authors: Katrine Moberg Riis, Annette Frölich
      Pages: 179 - 198
      Abstract: During 2017 – 2019, the Museum Sønderjylland
      – Arkæologi excavated a site (31.710 m2)
      located at Kassø (Rødekro) in advance of building
      activities. A female grave, which promised
      to be quite interesting due to her grave goods,
      was found here. The deceased was buried with
      grave goods consisting of pottery, glass and
      amber beads, copper alloy brooches, a silver
      brooch, a knife in a special scabbard, and an
      artefact which is interpreted as a surgical instrument.
      Analyses and comparisons of grave
      goods indicate the social status of the female,
      probably also of her origin, as well as the date
      of the grave to C1 b (225 – 250 AD). The surgical
      instrument is analysed, interpreted, and
      discussed in detail. It is argued that the Ønlev-
      grave is the only known Iron Age grave,
      found outside the Roman Empire, which we
      may assume to be the grave of a physician dating
      to the period 225 – 250 AD.

  • En rig kvindegrav med hesteudstyr - nye resultater fra

    • Authors: Mads Leen Jensen
      Pages: 199 - 220
      Abstract: In 2018, the Museum Sønderjylland carried
      out an excavation of the cemetery
      site of Tombølgård on the island of Als,
      southern Jutland, which has been partly
      destroyed by modern ploughing. The
      cemetery site dates to the Early Roman
      Iron Age, B 1 and B 2. The site is known
      from a small excavation of a single urn
      in 1932, and from metal detector finds
      found between 2016 and 2018. During
      the excavation in 2018, the last four cremation
      graves, of which two were intact,
      were excavated. This article presents the
      grave goods from one of these two cremation
      graves. It included a gold berlock
      pendant, a Roman saucepan, a bridle, and
      horse headgear. The bridle and headgear
      belong to the earliest Germanic types,
      and parallels may be drawn to the Rhine
      area and the auxiliary cavalry units posted
      there during the Roman expansion of
      the area up to the Elbe.

  • Fragmenter af et håndværk: Ten- og vævevægte fra førromersk jernalder
           i Jylland

    • Authors: Line Lerke, Christine Søvsø Hjorth-Jørgensen
      Pages: 221 - 238
      Abstract: Until now, spindle whorls and loom
      weights from the Pre-Roman and Early
      Roman Iron Age in Denmark have never
      been studied systematically, leaving an unexploited
      potential of insights into Early
      Iron Age textile craft. These spinning and
      weaving tools were finally documented
      and investigated during our bachelor project
      and master’s thesis at the University
      of Copenhagen in 2015 and 2017. The geographical
      focus was set on Jutland with its
      many settlements and burial sites from the
      periods in question. The projects resulted
      in various conclusions, among others that
      the use of the warp-weighted loom is reserved
      for the few, as indicated by a small
      number of loom-weights, which also coincides
      with the weaving technological
      testimonies of the many well-preserved
      textiles. Based on the work of e. g. Centre
      for Textile Research, this article lines
      out how to make analytical use of a loomweight.
      The spindle whorls appear in much
      higher numbers, representing a wide range
      of spinning potentials. The primary type
      of spindle-whorl is disc-shaped and manufactured
      from re-used potsherds, which
      have been rounded and pierced from both
      sides. We have tested these widely debated
      clay objects in a spinning test, which
      proved to determine that uneven sherds
      with skew piercings may very well be used
      as spindle whorls and do not have a negative
      effect on the outcome of the thread.
      The focus on these humble artefacts has
      integrated the textile tools in a conceptual
      framework stretching across manufacture
      and function, which is widening the
      understanding of textile craft in the Early
      Iron Age.

  • Knoglerne fra Kassø

    • Authors: Almut Fichte
      Pages: 239 - 258
      Abstract: The excavations in Kassø in 2017 – 2018
      covered 51.4 ha land. Among the excavations
      were the remains of two barely visible
      Bronze Age burial mounds as well as an early
      Roman Iron Age cremation burial site with
      an adjoining, contemporary settlement.
      Several of the individuals buried at the
      cremation cemetery site seem to be young
      to middle aged men; there are no clearly
      identified women and only few children, including
      one infant. The individuals carried
      a few pathological markers, some of them
      showing signs of arthritis, some possible
      genetic dental pathology, one individual
      showed signs of malnutrition in childhood,
      and another showed possible signs of a rich
      carbohydrate diet. Many of the graves also
      contained animal bones, almost exclusively
      of sheep/goat and mostly just a single lower
      leg. Furthermore, most of the represented
      grave goods are knives and parts of the belt,
      whereas four to five graves contained parts
      of weapons and shields.
      The six graves from the Bronze Age
      mounds have not yielded as much information
      as the Early Roman Iron Age cremation
      burial site. Most individuals were merely
      identified as adults, and none could be sexed.
      Nor did they show signs of pathology. However,
      two of the graves contained more than
      one person. Grave goods were only found in
      graves dating to the Early Bronze Age and
      comprised mostly adornments such as arm
      and neck rings and tutuli.

  • Tekstilproduktion i dansk bronzealder

    • Authors: Louise Felding, Lilian Matthes, Vianna Tastesen
      Pages: 259 - 272
      Abstract: So far, the archaeological research gives a
      good overview of the woolen textiles of the
      Early Bronze Age, especially the finds from
      the oak coffin burials. There are, however,
      still questions to ask about the production
      and manufacturing of wool, and how
      this can be seen in the material culture.
      Objects connected to textile production
      from settlement contexts in Denmark are
      still very sparse, loom weights and spindle
      whorls are not many to list. Of course, the
      conservation conditions and the missing
      knowledge of the material may explain
      the absence of such finds. However,
      of the objects from different
      Early Bronze Age settlements from
      Museum Sønderjylland actually shows
      that the textile production seems to have
      been more common than suggested until
      now – at least locally.

  • Treskibede bulvægshuse og deres vestdanske udbredelse.

    • Authors: Martin Egelund Poulsen
      Pages: 273 - 288
      Abstract: During the Nordic Bronze Age Period II
      and early Period III, 1500–1200 BC, South
      Scandinavia experienced an increase in
      the construction of barrows and longhouses.
      Their number, dimensions and the
      resources involved in their construction
      had a dramatic effect on the landscape.
      On the sandy plains of western, central
      and southern Jutland, longhouses were
      particularly large, robust structures. Their
      walls were constructed using the bole-wall
      technique that involved sturdy vertical
      posts and horisontal planks in between – a
      building tradition that demanded a large
      quantity of oak timber. On the young moraine
      landscapes of eastern Jutland and
      the Danish Isles, houses were built using
      a more ephemeral wall construction tradition,
      that often leaves little or no archaeological
      traces. But what did this regional
      variation reflect' Why are the large timber-
      consuming longhouses common in the
      old glacial landscapes of western Denmark,
      while they are missing in the central and
      eastern parts of South Scandinavia' This
      can hardly be explained simply as a result
      of resource availability. Pollen analyses
      from barrows, bogs and lakes in the western
      parts of Jutland have clearly shown
      evidence for a more open grass and heath
      landscape, whereas the heavy moraine
      soils of eastern Jutland and the eastern
      Danish Islands seemed to have been much
      more forested. One could ask if house construction
      in the western parts of Denmark
      was actually dependent on timber resources
      from central and eastern South Scandinavia.
      The bole-walled longhouses are
      particularly characteristic to the southern
      part of Jutland during the Early Bronze Age
      and their distribution corresponds to that
      of the largest Early Bronze Age barrows
      with their iron pans and rich burials. There
      to be an intentional act of conspicuous
      consumption in the construction
      of both monumental longhouses and barrows
      in the south-western part of Denmark
      during the Early Bronze Age.

  • Die Europäische Route der Megalithkultur in Schleswig-Holstein -
           Ergebnisse eines archäologischen Vermittlungsprojektes zwischen
           denkmalbasierter Forschung und Kulturtourismus

    • Authors: Rüdiger Kelm
      Pages: 289 - 301
      Abstract: Megalithic monuments are one of the most
      important archaeological site categories
      in Europe. They offer a high potential for
      regional identification. The monuments
      in Schleswig-Holstein which form part of
      the »European Route of Megalithic
      « (www.megalithicroutes.eu) are unique
      for the state itself, but can be seen – on a
      European level – as a connecting factor as
      well. In 2013 »Megalithic
      Routes« was officially
      recognised as a cultural route by the
      Council of Europe. With the »Steinzeitpark
      Dithmarschen« there is in 2019 only one
      member of the international association
      »Megalithic Routes e. V.« in Schleswig-Holstein
      which deals with the protection, the
      educational use, and communication of
      megaliths. In this context and in the frame
      of the »European Year of Culture 2018« under
      the SHARING HERITAGE mission, the
      State Archaeology Department of Schleswig-
      Holstein (Archäologisches Landesamt
      Schleswig-Holstein, Schleswig) and the
      Steinzeitpark Dithmarschen, Albersdorf,
      took the opportunity to initiate a joint project
      for the valuation of European Routes of
      Megalithic Culture and its archaeological
      legacy in Schleswig-Holstein. An exchange
      of ideas, networks and participation in
      the regional and international contexts of
      citizens and experts are the pillars of this
      project. The results of this project, which
      ended with an international conference in
      december 2019 and a publication about reception
      history of the megaliths, are presented
      in short form in this paper.

  • Tidsrummet for Hamborgkulturens bosættelse ved Jelssøerne kommenteret
           gennem forsøg på flintsammensætning

    • Authors: Jesper Borre Pedersen
      Pages: 303 - 317
      Abstract: As the Weichselian glaciation came to
      an end, the Fennoscandian ice sheet retreated
      and left behind young moraine
      landscapes, today referred to as southern
      Scandinavia. During this so-called Last
      Glacial-Interglacial Transition humans
      began to colonise the recently de-glaciated
      area with the earliest colonisation
      attempt taking place during the Bølling/
      Meiendorf chronozone (G I-1e). These
      pioneer settlers of the region brought
      with them a lithic repertoire of the
      Hamburgian Havelte tradition and are
      in Denmark known from sites separated
      into two somewhat delineated occupation
      areas, one of which is in southern
      Jutland at the Jels Lakes. The sites within
      this settlement pocket are similar in
      aspects, and interpretations of
      these sites making out one concurrent
      occupation have previously been proposed,
      yet rarely followed up upon. In
      this paper the question of contemporaneity
      between the two sites is revisited.
      With relevance to the rhythms of settlement
      or, indeed, of contemporaneity,
      within the Hamburgian micro-region
      at Jels, first attempts at refitting lithic
      material from these sites have been conducted.
      Impressions are here presented
      and future perspectives assessed.

  • Lufotoarkæologi i Slesvig

    • Authors: Esben Schlosser Mauritsen
      Pages: 319 - 331
      Abstract: In 2018, the aerial archaeological project
      Fortiden set fra Himlen ended. It marks
      the culmination of thirteen years of active
      aerial reconnaissance in the region of Slesvig.
      A brief history of the aerial archaeological
      actors and activities in Slesvig is presented.
      Many important sites have been
      detected, especially by St. Joseph and Stig
      Jensen. Their work has resulted in important
      excavations in e. g. Dankirke, Vilslev,
      and Råhede. In 2005, there was a renewed
      interest in the aerial archaeology in Slesvig
      and the author initiated two projects:
      one focused on investigating the Iron Age
      defensive earthworks of Olgerdiget and
      Æ Vold, and the other project focused
      on finding settlement sites dating to the
      Viking Age. In 2009, these projects were
      followed by Fortiden set fra Himlen, which
      carried out surveying in Slesvig and the
      North Frisian islands in particular. Altogether,
      130 sites were detected in Slesvig
      between 2005 and 2018. Roughly half
      of them can be dated to a specific period
      ranging from early Iron Age to historic
      times. The highest intensity of finds was
      made on the island of Föhr with no less
      than 156 hectares of cropmarks. It is hard
      to predict when aerial reconnaissance will
      be resumed in Slesvig. Nonetheless, new
      tools such as LiDAR scans, orthophotos,
      and drones ensure that aerial archaeology
      will keep playing a role in the future.
