Fieldnotes

Approximate long/lat coordinates only, but shouldn't be too hard to find - famous last words!

Access: In woodland, a short walk through the trees on fairly level & fairly even ground. May be boggy and/or slippery in wet weather. Just about visible from road - you can certainly see the road from the monuments, at least when the trees aren't covered in leaves!

On the island of Als, so travel towards S√łnderborg on the 8. Continue on the 8 until you are nearly at Fynshav, looking out for a turning left to Helleved (& probably Elstrup) - the road may be called Katry. Take this and prepare to take the next right, 'Helved' (not sure if there is a sign that tells you its name).

The road bears left and enters a forest. At the first crossroads (very approximately 1km along this road) turn right and pretty much immediately, the monuments are in the trees on your right.

Here there is a dolmen in the almost flattened remains of its runddysse mound, and a very 'shallow' (flattened, I assume) langdysse with an open cist-like chamber.

Pretty underwhelming, but worth a look if you're travelling to the more impressive sites in the area.

Apparently, on the other side of the road, there are 3 large burial mounds. We didn't investigate, as the trees on that side seemed much more dense....
