Iron Age Ship Setting Find

Published fredag 17 november 2006 kl 12.43

The Ales Stones, Sweden’s largest preserved ”ship setting” looks like it may not be alone.

The ground surrounding the raised stones, which are set in the layout of a ship, yielded interesting pictures with the help of new, revolutionary equipment. With its help, archaeologists are able to search large areas without digging. A preliminary interpretation of the images has researchers convinced that another ship setting lies beneath the ground.

Historians have been unsure of the function the Iron Age stones may have had, or what the ship setting symbolized but the new find may help answer a few questions.
