Grinde, Tysvær

Standing Stones


There are 7 stones at Grinde (the site is called Dukjen), they are known as Resa- or Sversteinane. The stones are 1,8 - 4 m. high and 0,5 -1,5 m. wide.

In 1919 only one of the stones were standing, 6 were used as building-material for bridges. The site was restored in 1952 and the stones were placed in a L.

The stones may come from an old quarry at Grindevatnet, about 550 m. north-east from Dukjen.
