About us

Gotland Archaeological Field School started with the excavations at the Viking Age harbour and trading site Fröjel in 1998. The course has since excavated a range of different sites on Gotland, including Paviken - another harbour and trading site, as well as farmsteads.

The field school is managed by Arendus AB, which is a small archaeology buisness located on Gotland. We have more than 30 years of experience with Gotlands cultural heritage and excavations. Together with the Gotland Folk High School and independent researchers we aim to spread the knowledge about Gotland's rich prehistory.

3D Artefacts

We are currently 3D scanning some of the artefacts from previous excavations. This is an ongoing project and we will publish the models here as the work goes on.
