Kultur och Fritid
The old dump
When the district was excavated, archaeologists found the single most stinking site, but also one of the most important places in town. Here, lots of remains were found: pieces of keys, locks, torch holders, pottery, bowls and spoons, baskets, knives, fire-lighting stones, needles, scissors, whetstones, shoes, gloves, bags, pouches and pearls, as well as a large number of glass objects.
Even weaponry had ended up on the plot: crossbows, arrow heads, gauntlets, scabbards, and so on. Apart from all this, archaeologists found lots of manure, wooden chips and animal bones. In short: This was Söderköping's old dump.
