Shock Bronze Age find 'changes history'

Archaeologists in northern Sweden have located the remains of a farm from the Bronze Age, a find which challenges the established history of the area around Umeå and the province of Norrland.

“It is completely unique,” Jan Heinerud at Västerbotten’s Museum in Umeå told The Local on Friday. “We have never previously found a long house like this so far north.”

The farm was discovered in the area between Backen and Klabböle in an area known as Klockaråkern and it is thought that the farm was in use for almost 600 years from around 1100 BC.

Heinerud said that the museum’s experts have been unable to establish exactly who would have lived at the location, but that they have a number of theories. Read more.

#68: D.S.-13 - “thrash and burn”

i was quite surprised to see that this is a 6". i thought it’s another 7" in my collection. “thrash and burn” is one of the best D.S.-13-releases, i think. the tiny sticker on the cover says everything: “fast!”. the 9 songs (recorded in september 1998) are really fast and are way less punk than their earlier stuff. fastcore or old-school-hardcore, i would say. my favourite one is “youth crue uber alles” - again because of the singalongs.

and the song “david sandström” has some funny lyrics: “david sandström i refused är en jävla kukskalle” which means something like “david sandström from refused is a dickhead”. please correct me, if i’m wrong (i’m talking about the translation, not about david sandström - i don’t know him personally).
