Ängakåsen gravefield

Join us for a unique and exciting evening hike out on Ängakåsens burial ground with archaeologist Ann-Louise’s Ferngård. During the total of 1.5 km long hike we will meet more than 130 different graves of an age of about 3 500 years. Some graves are large stone ships, others are invisible beneath the ground.

During the evening we try out how the Bronze Age funeral ale may have tasted. Out on the burial ground, we listen to ancient “music”, examine objects and test clothes. We also visit the cult houses, the mysterious rectangles in stone that hide beneath the oaks. We finish in Kiviksgraven where we explore the rock carvings with our flashlights. The hike is carried out in a small group, Max 15 participants, for the best service to everyone. The experience is performed in Swedish or English depending on the group’s wishes.
