Abstract [en]

The Fröjel fragment represents a high level ofcraftsmanship. Due to its damaged state and as itwas found singly in mixed deposits, it is hard todetermine its original use and depositional context.It is possible that the quatrefoil was originallypart of the inventory of a destroyed grave inor close to the local cemetery, but it may also havebeen deliberately deposited or brought in as rawmaterial intended for reuse in the workshops ofthe later harbour settlement. Technical analysiswill most probably reveal more information, butmeanwhile the presence of the fragment itselfserves both to elaborate our understanding of thesite and to underline its importance.
