The neighborhood Gesällen

Prior to the archaeological survey of a large part of the Gesällen neighborhood on Kvarnholmen in Kalmar, a building historical survey of the area was carried out. By studying archival documents, mainly fire insurance documents, maps and pictures of properties within the current part of the block, the development of the block was mapped. The building history study has also functioned as a method experiment to investigate how the building history information can be used as support for an archaeological investigation.
