Borg - Midden
List of Sites
Test-excavations were carried out in this area from 1984-1986 in connection with the finds from Borg I. Further investigations in 1989 uncovered three house-sites and remains of a possible fence(Borg II). East of Borg II, house 1, a trench uncovered a midden (a waste disposal site), containing cultural layers. The midden is interpreted as being part of the settlement at Borg throughout the Iron Age. A number of artefacts found here are supposed to originate from Borg II: houses 1-3.
