Borg Sites from Iron Age/Medieval
List of Sites
The Borgarca was partly investigated from 1983-1984. North West of the main house Borg I it was localised 5-6 house remains, covering the area around Borg II and Borg III. Several iron fragments and slag were uncovered beneath a possible floor area dated to Viking Age. Other features like post holes and cultural layers connected to house remains were found. Dating indicates the Merovingian Period. One earlier fireplace was localised, belonging to the Migration Period, comprising the Early Iron Age. As many as three house remains have been situated at this area. Several other post holes, fireplaces, wall ditches indicate even two or three other house sites. These questions may be answered if further investigations are taking place in the future.
