Abstract

The excavation of the submerged Mesolithic settlement Møllegabet started in 1976 as the first excavation of a submerged land-site in Denmark. The fine preservation of organic materials created methodological problems but also provided fantastic finds, such as a dwelling from 5100 B.C. in a shallow pit with a bark covered, earth-built platform preserved, wall stakes, remains of vegetable food items, etc. A few metres from the dwelling the grave of a young man buried in a dug-out boat was uncovered. The use of high-resolution seismics combined with a number of cores allows a reconstruction of the main lines in the geological situation around the finds and this a reconstruction of the geophysical environment.
