Then comparing that to ancient remains and some important changes in society during the period Iron age – 18th century I’ve tried to decide if the roads stretches back in prehistory by making models for three different periods 1700-1800s, late Iron age- Medieval period and Iron age with different methods. Examples of roads that are probable to stretch back in prehistory are presented and whit these a discussion... (More)
