Dysser i Lindeskov Hestehave



Access: See fieldnotes for Lindeskov Langdysse 1. This 'subcomplex' is reached by a lane that enters the woods a couple of hundred metres to the west of the monuments.

This is not the same lane as Lindeskov Langdysse 1 is on, but if heading west on the 323, it is the next (small) lane heading north.

Once at the woods, reach the clearing by a worn path leading east along the edge of the woods. The path is a little overgrown and not all that even. Could be slippery when wet.

Wow!!! What a wonderful surprise! My research hadn't led us to these monuments, but we saw them on an information board at Lindeskov Langdysse 1.

Neither Julian in The Megalithic European, nor James Dyer in Discovering Archaeology in Denmark even mentions their existence! (but then Julian only mentions Langdysse 6 and Dyer only Langdysse 1 & 6.)

In a clearing in the woods there are 2 langdysser, a burial chamber (dyssekammer) and a round barrow (runddysse). They're a little 'worn around the edges', but still totally essential viewing.
