Dataset on the deposits of the semi-circular rampart around the former Viking settlement Hedeby and its vicinity
Dataset on the physicochemical analysis and morphological description of the material of the semi-circular rampart around the former Viking settlement Hedeby and its vicinity. The drilling cores were taken along a coring transect across the semi-circular rampart. The material of the cores was sampled. The following properties were determined: pH, weight percentage of gravel, charcoal, artefacts, and bones, loss on ignition, magnetic susceptibility, grain size distribution ≤2 mm, elemental concentrations.
