nice traces of prehistoric activities. At the bottom

Due to the fast progression of construction
activities, this area was originally not planned
to be subjected to larger archaeological investigations.
This area is in immediate proximity of the tunnel
leading under the strait to Melkoya.
In the picture to the left the excavation
area is marked with a red circle. Here it is worked
close to bulldozers and trucks.
The excavations are now completed
and the area is given over to the construction companies.
