Hello world!

Just wanted to give you all some information what’s going on with the site, why somethings haven’t happened yet and what’s to come!

First why there haven’t been any YouTube videos for a while: Some of them are near completion but lack some polish. I need to shoot the last sequences with a web camera and the one I have ordered have been delayed until the end of September. But I might redo some of the videos a bit so I can post them earlier.

I’m also currently working on an article about experimental archaeology I’ve done with soapstone vessels in combination with digital archaeology as well. This take some time since the article is closing on deadline as well…

I’m also working on an excavation in Sweden outside Landskrona in the southern part of Sweden which have taken most of my awaken time working 40 hours a week. The excavation have ranged from the Early Neolithic to today.

Next week I will be working with some digital archaeology and get some of it published but I will give you more info about that when it is done.

I have also started to look at making a transition to a paid webhotel. This homepage is currently running on the WordPress free service which is really good but is somewhat limiting on what I can do with it. This also hinders me a bit to develop the site the way I want to which is why I’m looking for moving the site to a real web hotel.

I’m also currently negotiating for co-operation with different companies and organisations and in the coming months much will happen :D.

The ARATNE trailer have been on ice for a short while due to lack of time but I will continue working on it in the coming weeks.

I will also start posting more unique posts in different ways about archaeology, technology and a combination of the two there is much to be said and done about these subjects.

As you can see in the menu as well there is still a lot of pages to be established and filled with content. The aim is also to get some content like 3d-models, reviews and more as well in the not to far future. I’m also applying for a job and if I get that it might take some extra time before everything is launched at the blog. But otherwise I will be studying at the university and have some more time to put into the blog and homepage.

But be sure much is going on and I’m hard at work getting a good foundation to this homepage and to the ARATNE network!

Please leave comments and feedback! What would you like to see here, on Youtube, Facebook and Twitter?

Hello everyone around the world!

I’m sorry for not posting much content to the blog today. I’ve been really superbusy today and will continue to be that the next couple of days. On Sunday I’ll hope to be more or less be running in full speed again.

It is my university studies of historical archaeology that takes a lot of time. So I can give you an example of what it can be like. At the moment we are currently working with a block in Lund. The point is that we cover and write a report on the history from the Stone Age until today and what has happened. We are also looking at things as social status, crafting, buildings, and what buildings that is important to preserve.

My group have the block known as Repslagaren in Lund in the southern part of Sweden. The name is connected to a factory during the 20th century which manufactured “ropes” of all kinds to boats etc. So far we have discovered that we have a church Saint Stephen. The first one was built in timber during 1050 AD and was demolished probably around 1110. Another church also to honor Saint Stephen built in stone this time which stood until the reformation. During the excavation in the 1970’s there was found over 2000 graves. We also have some metal crafting during the medieval period and later on we have gardens a high elementary school for girls as well as factory for making sugar. The sugar factory failed during the middle of the 19th century. It only succeed in making a badly smelling fluid.

It is really an interesting report to make and requires a lot of research and it is a good excercise. But to conclude were all the houses have been is quite hard to figure out because they are mentioned in written sources or sometimes seen in the archaeology. But due to the way the archaeology sometimes were handled 30-40 years ago much have been destroyed and was poorly documented. The report will be finished in the beginning of October.

Feel free to ask if you want to know more, I’ll maybe post more updates about it later on.
