Raiders of the lost site?– Vi vill inte berätta för allmänheten var denna plats ligger ännu eftersom vi ärrädda att det kommer hit arkeologer eller andra som vill göra egnaundersökningar, säger Ingrid Cassel. (…) Det vi önskar från kommunens sida är attdet inte utfärdas tillstånd för arkeologer som vill göra utgrävningar.”We don’t want tho tell the public where this site is yet, since weare afraid archaeologists or others will come here and do theirown investigations. (…) What we from the municipality want isthat no permission shall be granted to archaeologists wanting todo their own excavation.” Ingrid Cassel, Municipality councillor
