Fig 1Boxplot of ridge values, for different categories of sites. High values indicate locations
on or near prominent ridges. The chronological classes used are 1: Bronze Age and Pre-Roman Iron Age, 2: Roman Iron Age and Migration Period, 3: Vendel Period, 4: Viking Age. Periods 3 and 4 are displayed both separately and combined in a class ‘3/4’ to account for the questions on how the Late Iron Age sites should be understood. (Löwenborg 2010)
