THE TRACKS OF FALUN'S GREEN ROOMS DURING THE 1600-1700S
Archaeologist

The city of Falu has over the years been investigated archaeologically on several occasions and thereby we have gained an increased knowledge of its older buildings. In recent years, we have also found traces of cultivation in the city through new methods. This means that the image of the living environment in older Falun has changed. In the field of urban archeology, a new branch has emerged over the past decade - Garden Archeology. By developing new methods and issues, cultivations of various kinds have been identified in many Swedish medieval and early modern cities, including Falun, despite the rust smoke that lay like a blanket over the city.

URBAN CULTIVATIONS DURING THE 1600th - 1700s
Archaeologist

In recent decades, a new branch of archeology has emerged, Garden Archeology.
Within the field, the focus has been on two different areas: partly castle and manor environments, but also the cities' green spaces, ie the cultivated parts of the cities, e.g. Falun, Linköping, Växjö, Kalmar. In several cities, a change has been seen during the Middle Ages compared to early modern times. In medieval city gardens, archaeologists have mainly found mixed contents of vegetables and medicinal plants, while in early modern times, traces of tobacco cultivation, ornamental gardens with cut flowers, berry bushes and oranger cultivation appear.
