Charcoal kilns in Vestnes from the Late Iron Age and Middle Ages

This paper presents the first potential evidence of charcoal production prior to AD 1200 in Møre og Romsdal. During a recent archaeological survey, 16 charcoal deposits from the Late Iron Age and Middle Ages were discovered in the municipality of Vestnes. The authors argue that these deposits should be interpreted as charcoal kilns. Contrary to the common tradition in Late Iron Age and Medieval Norway of burning charcoal in pits, the new data suggest that charcoal was manufactured in charcoal kilns above the ground level, rather than in pits, prior to AD 1200 in Møre og Romsdal.
