Handberg Charcoal Pit
List of Sites
Registrations from 1978 supply us with the following information:
Pit, 1 m in dm and 0,5 m deep, situated c. 600 m SSW from the area of Handberg in outlying fields.
It is questioned whether this site could be part of an iron production site. Several pits are localised by the mountain side (interpreted as Sámi housesites).
New registrations by Geir Are Johansen redefine the sites from Sámi house sites to charcoal pits.
- Supplement registrations from 1978, done by Káre Ringstad: Topographical Archive, Museum of Tromsø. New registrations by Geir Are Johansen 2002
