Description (abstract)

The Early Iron Age in Finland is best known by burial sites, characterized with low stone cairns. The cairns that are seldom specifically studied have generally been assumed to be graves, while single investigations conducted at these structures have not yet entirely clarified their nature. This project, with a focus on the Åland Islands, will apply a variety of modern approaches and methodologies to contribute to unravelling the story of these elusive cairns.
