The information in the abstract is translated from the archaeological report:
A archaeological assessment (phase 2) was performed by the Swedish National Heritage Board's Contract Archaeology Service, UV Öst, at Lundby Backgård in Mjölby, due to a local plan containing 40 new building plots. During the evaluation survey, carried out in June 2003, an area with hearths and wall trenches was discovered. The same kind of features, dated to the Neolithic, have been found only a few kilometres from the survey area. The features were excavated during the evaluation, seeing that the area containing archaeological remains was very limited.


The information in the purpose is translated from the archaeological report:
The purpose of the archaeological assessment was to determine whether any archaeological remains were going to be affected by the development plans in the area, and if so, to what extent.

The ZIP file consist of GIS files and an Access database with information about the excavations, findings and other metadata about the archaeological survey.
