Norska regeringen beviljar 15 miljoner till utgrävning av vikingatida båtgrav

Under hösten 2018 annonserade norska arkeologer att man påträffat en vikingatida så kallad båtgrav i Gjellestad. Initiala undersökningar visade att graven dateras till mitten av 700-talet e.Kr samt att ett antal mindre gravar intill ett bostadskomplex också stått på platsen. På grund av dåliga bevaringsförhållanden som enligt arkeologerna just nu skadar båtgraven har den norska regeringen beviljat 15,6 miljoner norska kronor till att gräva ut, undersöka och konservera resterna efter graven.

Det nya beslutet innebär att undersökningen blir den första som genomförs på en vikingatida båtgrav på 100 år i Norge, vilket gör projektet som planeras starta redan i Juni närmast unikt.

?? In late 2018 norwegian archaeologists announced that they had found a Viking age so called ship burial in Gjellestad. Initial investigations dated the grave to mid 8th century AD and also revealed a collection of smaller graves next to a settlement complex in the same area. Due to poor preservation conditions currently damaging the grave the norwegian goverment has announced a 15,6 million NOK (approx £12 million) grant to investigate, document and preserve what remains of the grave.

The new decision means the excavation will be the first one to be undertaken on a Viking age ship burial in 100 years in Norway, making the project starting this June all but unique.
