Archaeologists complete geological survey near grave of medieval warrior

In 2013, archaeologists in Janakkala, Finland were thrilled by the discovery of the grave of a medieval warrior in what might be an ancient burial ground or even a settlement. The discovery has sparked enough interest to support more excavations, depending on the results of a recent survey.

Archaeologists from York University have carried out geophysical surveys of the field, using "a pulse-induction metal detector and a magnetometer." If the results show evidence of substantial human activity, more excavations will be ordered.
