Archaeology / archaeological mill discoveries
Danish term or phrase: skvatmoelle
From an article about an archaeological book about mill discoveries. Could someone please enlighten me?

Example: Tidligere forkdere har sat lighedstegn mellem begrebet 'skvatmoelle (af skvat, der betyder 'lille smule vand' og moelle) og horisontal moelle.
Advice appreciated!

skvatmølle
Explanation:
Treat as proper noun (Please note the spelling!). This mill type was not used in English speaking countries, and there is thus no word for it in the English language.

Insert explanation within brackets or footnote.

V&B proffers: "skvatmølle sb. [mill driven by a small amount of water]"
