Abstract

In recent years archaeological excavations in Jutland have revealed several burial mounds with iron pans. This paper describes the results of the chemical and morphological analyses of the burial mound and the buried soil below. It was established that the soil profile development in the top of the barrow was very weak probably as a result of soil erosion, but iron pans had been formed by reduction/oxidation processes (gley-formation) surrounding the core of the mound. The buried soil below the barrow was an acid sandy soil without signs of podzolisation
