Archaeological investigations caused by housing developments in the northern part of Slagelse, Zealand, has revealed extensive traces of a medieval farmstead. Two separate, but neighbouring investigations at Mellemmarken 1 and Tidselbjerg reveil part of the same farmstead. Mellemmarken 1 and Tidselbjerg functioned from 900-1300 and show a number of houses, resource- and production areas and artefacts. Parts from a wheel plough and a kiln for pottery deserve special attention and contribute to a general understanding of dynamic developments, resources exploitations and social relations in the medieval rural organisation. The medieval farmstead as a field of archaeological interest has received little attention in recent years and it is therefore important to present and evaluate archaeological investigations. This article will part from the archaeological results and include scientific analysis from macrofossil and zoological material as well as 14C-datings in order to evaluate this specific location in relation to a local and regional rural organisation.
