One of the most important prehistoric finds in Ulstein. Traces of several thousand years of continuous settlement. Finds of 180 postholes, 42 fire pits, 6 hearths, 4 ditches, traces of ploughing and prehistoric civilisation. Some of the postholes are the remains of dwellings. Traces of ploughing are to be found over large parts of the excavation site. The deepest ploughing traces lie at a depth of 1.70 m. Beneath the topsoil are remains of a dwelling from old Iron Age/Bronze Age. At today’s road junction stood the old cluster of buildings at Osnes. All the finds are on cultivated land and are not visible.
