Stone Circle


This burial field was restored in the 1940s. There are 60 graves, of which 38 are stone circles of varying size (the 2 biggest in the pictures). The trident is unusually large, and is probably a cenotaph, a symbolic grave. The site is from early iron age, 500BCE to 500CE.

How to get there
Take the south road (road 132) to Aneby from road 32. When you reach Aneby, turn right, and immediately left, so you drive on a bridge over road 132.

After 7 kilometres, turn left towards Flisby. The site is on the right side after 1 kilometre.

The trident can be seen in GE (or Google maps).
