The great forest fire that hit Västmanland last summer has unearthed archaeological remains that may date as far back as the Stone Age, Swedish Radio Västmanland reports.

The big forest fire was a tragedy for many. One man died, scores of houses were destroyed and the damages of the forest amount to millions of kroner, but according to Västmanland's county council it also helped uncover remains from as far back as the stone age.

The county council has now asked the National Heritage Board for 2 million krona to be able to explore the area further.
