Abstract [en]

In May 2014, four prehistoric ring-forts on the island of Öland, namely Gråborg, Vedby borg, Bårby borg and Löts borg, were surveyed using a motorized ground penetrating radar (GPR) system. The surveys were carried out as a part of the project “The Big Five”, financed by the Swedish research council and the Royal Academy of Letters, history and Antiquities, and included high-resolution GPR data collection, covering in total approximately 7.5 ha of land inside the forts.As a complement to the geophysical survey the remaining walls and surroundings of Gråborg and Vedby borg were surveyed with a MMS Geotracker. MMS systems are currently being used for high-resolution documentation of, for example, railroad tracks, but are also important for road planning and maintenance, asset management and for the generation of 3D city models (see Kutterer 2010: 293 ff.). It has also been tested and evaluated on archaeological sites (e.g., Stud-nicka et al. 2013). The Geotracker system had not previously been used for the documentation of archaeological remains and the survey was considered a pilot study to evaluate its advantages and disadvantages for archaeological applications.
