The Five Bad Virgins

Standing Stones


The Five Bad Virgins is 5 stones at Norheim , very close to the bridge over the sound (Karmsundet) between the mainland at Haugesund and Karm√ły. There are 3 stones marking the corners in a triangle and 2 stones in the middle.

In 1901 a bronze-kettle containing ashes and bearclaws wrapped in cloth was found about 2 meters west of the 2 middle stones. The kettle is probably roman from South-West Germany dated to about 300CE.

If you come from Haugesund take to the right just after RadisonSAS and follow the signs.
