I’ve had the great fortune of being involved in the excavation and presentation of the iron age ring fort, Sandby Borg, on Öland for the past couple of years. The archaeological department of the museum of Kalmar county is in charge of the excavation, where I did my internship whilst studying to become an archaeologist.
As part of a course we spent a couple of weeks living on this beautiful island and excavating this extraordinary place and event in time. It was an amazing experience which changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined.
During the excavation I had taken pictures that was later used in different publication. The museum, understanding the value of a considered presentation, allowed me to spend a couple of months in the archive, documenting every find that had been uncovered at Sandby Borg. You’ll find a small assortment of these below.
