Arkeologi i Vadstena

Vadstena is a small late Medieval town dominated by the 13th century royal palace, the 14th century Brigittine double convent and the 16th century royal castle. When the latter was being built an entire part of the Medieval town was erased and its inhabitants evicted to other parts of the town. An excavation in 1995-1998 has documented the unique remains of this settlement, which gives new knowledge about the non-elite population in the town.
