The archaeology of the Bronze Age cultural landscape - research goals, methods, and results

Olausson, Deborah LU (1992) In The Archaeology of the Cultural Landscape 19.
Abstract
The article describes the methods used to determine Bronze Age peoples' use of the landscape in southern Scandinavia. The study is part of the Ystad Project, a large, interdisciplinary project with the aim of studying people and landscape from the advent of agriculture about 6000 years ago. Methods used included studies of archive data and maps, fieldwalking, and excavation. Results showed that the main settlement zone followed the coast, with only sporadic indications of activity further inland.
