Layers of living in layers of time
In 2013 the largest urban archaeological excavation ever undertaken in West Sweden started in the area of Gamlestaden in Gothenburg. The town of "Nya Lödöse", which lay here between 1473 and 1624 was excavated. The area is set to undergo major transformations and change the urban landscape. The archaeological dig was done behind fences. You can have a glimpse of what´s going on, peeking through little openings, but it is hard to understand – what is happening?
