Abstract [en]

This candidate thesis concerns the “all but forgotten” material from the bronze age site named “Raä 977, Hansbo 1:3, Vojmsjön, Vilhelmina”. During 1975-76, an archaeological dig was carried out by Västerbottens museum led by Ulla Walukiewich in an attempt to preserve the information the site held, before it was destroyed by the erosion brought on by the recently regulated sea “Vojm” (Vojmsjön). The archaeological dig yielded a stunning amount of finds, samples and information previously unknown. Amongst these finds where a large amount of quartzite scrapers, arrowheads and other stone tools, typologically dated to BC 1500- BC 1000. Two groups of three structures each, interpreted as “hearths” were also discovered. The dig was carried out in extreme detail for this time and provided 54 soil samples originally intended for phosphate analyses by “spot-tests” and coal samples for carbon dating. The site was documented in a grid of 33*33 cm and was dug in an artificial stratigraphy of 3cm layers. Because of these samples and the high resolution of the recorded data it is now possible with new technology and archaeological/environmental archaeological methods to extract even more information from this site, and that is what this paper intends to present. This new information that might be altering the interpretation of the site as a “settlement site” and hopefully shine light on the purpose of the site and to what extent the site have been utilized as well as the extent of the site itself. Hopefully this will enable a more accurate rendering of the activity’s preformed on site, and the lives of the people that once inhabited it, by comparing the result of the analysis presented below and previous research done in the area.
