    The ringfort by the sea: Archaeological geophysical prospection and excavations at Sandby borg (Öland)2014In: Archäologisches Korrespondenzblatt, ISSN 0342-734X, Vol. 44, no 3, p. 413-428Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Archaeological investigations and clear aerial photos have identified the presence of house foundations within several ringforts on the island of Öland, east of the Swedish mainland. One of them, Sandby borg, was selected for further investigations by means of a ground-penetrating radar (GRP) and magnetometry survey. A subsequent excavation was carried out to validate the geophysical results. The results of the geophysical survey clearly show the presence of 36 or 37 stone foundations for houses situated radially around the wall of the fort as well as of 16 or 17 similar house foundations in a central building group. The geophysical results also provided information on other buried features within the fort and also confirm the location of a third gate situated in the north-western part of the fort. The available evidence indicates that the ringfort was used for military purposes, or as a place of refuge in times of unrest, for a limited period of time during the late 5th century.

    Ballast: Laden with history2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    For centuries ships were ballasted with sand, gravel, stone, or rubble to give them stability, and when they no longer needed the extra weight, it was dumped. The result was that huge quantities of ballast were shipped to new places and new continents.

    In Ballast the archaeologist Mats Burström charts how ship ballast helped to shape the world we live in. Ballast was often reused, sometimes in surprising ways. With the ballast went animal and plant life of all sorts, inadvertently spread to places where they are now so well established that they are thought of as native species. And it was not unknown for ancient artefacts to be found in the ballast too, turning up in the most unexpected places.

    This is the first comprehensive account of ship ballast, so long overlooked, and now finally recognized for its diverse and exciting history.

    Abstract [sv]

    Barlast är ett arkeologiskt massmaterial som trots sin myckenhet inte tilldragit sig något större intresse. Den har dock avsatt många och ibland också överraskande spår. Såväl fornsaker som djur- och växtarter har genom sjöfarten med barlast oavsiktligt förflyttats mellan kontinenter.

    Barlast: Massor med historia2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Barlast är den tyngd som håller fartygen stabila i sjön. Under lång tid användes sand, grus, sten och rivningsmassor för syftet. När den extra vikten inte längre behövdes dumpades den och på så sätt förflyttades enorma mängder material till nya platser och nya kontinenter. Där kom massorna ofta till användning på andra och ibland överraskande sätt.

    Arkeologen Mats Burström visar i ord och bild hur forna tiders barlast bidragit till att forma den värld vi lever i. Både djur och växter följde oavsiktligt med fartygen och spreds till nya områden. I dag är många av dessa arter så väletablerade att de betraktas som inhemska. Även fornsaker råkade ibland finnas med i barlasten och har därför dykt upp på helt oväntade platser.

    Detta är den första samlade framställningen om barlast och de spår den lämnat genom århundraden av omfattande sjöfart. Denna förbisedda extralast visar sig rymma massor av tankeväckande historia.

    Abstract [en]

    During the Second World War, many Estonians buried family possessions before fleeing overseas. Yet their hopes of returning soon to recover them were dashed by the postwar Soviet occupation. During the long years of exile, these possessions were transformed from everyday objects into a kind of repository for memories. One way for exiles to remember their homeland and sustain their dreams of return was to tell stories. Some managed to retrieve their belongings while in exile, others went back to find them after the fall of the Soviet Union. This chapter examines a selection of stories about underground wartime hoards in order to show how family traditions lend a human dimension to grand narratives of the recent past.

    Creative Confusion: Modern Ruins and the Archaeology of the Present2011In: Rethinking Time: Essays on History, Memory, and Representation / [ed] Hans Ruin & Andrus Ers, Huddinge: Södertörn University , 2011, 1, p. 119-128Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Ruins, understood as a cultural state in which material objects find themselves, affect people. This applies in particular to ruins of the late modern era. In contrast to how we normally perceive remains from antiquity, many of us do not seem fully mentally prepared to meet the contemporary past in state of ruin. Realizing that even the present and the familiar now are objects of archaeological concern makes you reflect upon the passing of time and your own place in history. Suddenly, the fundamental categories of past and present do not seem relevant. This confusion may indeed be creative and points towards an archaeology beyond modernity, an archaeology that recognizes no chronological borders.

    How bomb debris from Bristol, England, made a road in NYC: Solid ship ballast from the age of sail tells surprising stories about history2018In: Hakai magazine, E-ISSN 2371-5790Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Just when we thought we knew everything important about the age of sail and its impact on the world, along comes research that exposes our collective myopia when gazing at the past. Ships carried all sorts of things across the oceans, including commodities, disease, and ideas. But as archaeologist and author Mats Burström shows, ships also scattered bits of their homelands—quite literally—around the world.

    Today, ships use water as ballast, in the process delivering microscopic organisms to international ports. But once upon a time, mariners relied on solids—bricks, stones, and gravel—to lend their ships stability. In four centuries of sailing, they left millions of tonnes of material around the globe from Canada to India.

    In this excerpt from his new book Ballast: Laden with History, which has its North American release this week, Burström reveals the surprising story of ballast and considers its place in archaeology. Is historical ballast an artifact or a natural object?

    Minnesgömmor: Berättelser om föremål gömda i jorden i Estland under andra världskriget2012 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Under hösten 1944 flydde omkring 70 000 människor från Estland undan den framryckande Röda armén och nästan hälften av dem kom till Sverige. De flesta trodde att den sovjetiska ockupationen skulle bli kortvarig och att de snart skulle kunna återvända hem. Många gömde därför värdefulla ägodelar som inte kunde tas med i flykten genom att gräva ner dem på "säkra" ställen. Ända fram till Stalins död 1953 fortsatte människor att gömma föremål i jorden, nu av rädsla för att bli deporterade till Sibirien.

     

    I Minnesgömmor skildrar arkeologen Mats Burström historierna om några av dessa skatter; föremål som blev kvar i jorden, sådana som försvann, och sådana som återfanns och nu ingår i nya sammanhang. De mångskiftande berättelserna binder samman den lilla och den stora historien, och speglar hur världspolitiska skeenden formar enskilda familjers livsöden, ibland i flera generationer.

    Men mest av allt handlar denna samtidsarkeologiska studie om vad föremål betyder för oss och för vår förmåga att minnas.

    More than a Sensitive Ear: What to Expect of a Professional Expert2014In: Who Needs Experts?: Counter-mapping Cultural Heritage / [ed] John Schofield, Farnham: Ashgate, 2014, p. 101-112Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The need for dialogue between heritage management and various societal groups is now widely recognized. This is a great improvement which has changed the role of the professional expert. It is no longer sufficient to just have expert knowledge within your scholarly field; you must also be able to conduct a two-way communication with people outside that field who have other interests and priorities. How the heritage management should respond to these different views is however a delicate matter. It is not self-evident that the management best represents the public interest by making the public’s opinion their own. It may, on the contrary, be argued that the professional expert has a particular responsibility to stand up for other values than those that are spontaneously embraced by the public.
