Exciting discovery reveals ancient Iron Age port on Sweden’s Gotska Sandön Island

In a thrilling collaboration between archaeologists from Södertörn University, Uppsala University’s Campus Gotland, Gotland Museum, and the Swedish National Heritage Board, a remarkable find has come to light on the picturesque Gotska Sandön island.

Following the discovery of two 2,000-year-old Roman silver coins earlier this year, researchers have now unearthed evidence of twenty hearths on the same beach. This site, believed to be an Iron Age port, suggests a fascinating link between ancient civilizations and their maritime activities. The possibilities are as intriguing as they are limitless.
