Abstract (Swedish)
The question was asked whether or not it was possible to discern a connection between architecture, house functions and household activities among three-aisled longhouses at Lockarp, Malmö. Traces of postholes, along with the findings of artefacts and burnt herb seeds, constituted the major material culture left for revision by this study. The data used was based on reports from the excavation projects of Öresundsförbindelsen and Citytunnelprojektet, with focus on three adjacent areas in Lockarp and remains primarily dated to the end of Pre-Roman Iron Age/early Roman Iron Age. The study only allowed for a small fraction of the remains to be analysed, yet it was enough to yield interesting results and make a methodological trial. There’s no... (More)
The question was asked whether or not it was possible to discern a connection between architecture, house functions and household activities among three-aisled longhouses at Lockarp, Malmö.

The data used was based on reports from the excavation projects of Öresundsförbindelsen and Citytunnelprojektet, with focus on three adjacent areas in Lockarp and remains primarily dated to the end of Pre-Roman Iron Age/early Roman Iron Age. The study only allowed for a small fraction of the remains to be analysed, yet it was enough to yield interesting results and make a methodological trial. There’s no striking consistency between architecture and traces of activity among the studied houses, however certain repeated patterns of artefact composition and herb material dispersion could be distinguished. These identified patterns can be argued to hint at multifunctional three-aisled longhouses as well as behaviour and attitude towards functions within the immediate cultural landscape. (Less)
