Amber pearls, arrow heads, axes, chisels, drills, knives and
scrapes of flintstone clay pots and the remains of at least 7 people
has been found.

About 2 metres east of the passage grave are the remains of a cist, consisting
of 4 stones.

The mound can be seen in GE and the passage entrance can just be
seen on the eastsoutheast edge.

How to get there:
After you have visited the site Glumslövs backar, continue northwards on highway E6
and turn off at the next exit (after 3 kilometres). Turn westwards and turn left in
the roundabout after 600 metres. Turn right just when you leave the town
Glumslöv (after 3,6 kilometres), and after 3,1 kilometres you will find a parking spot to the right. Park there and the site is in the field northwest of the parking spot.

The site is in the middle of a farmer's field, on GE you can see a track through the field pointing northwest. When i visited the site, this track didn't exist, i found one
southwest of the site instead, so when you visit the spot, please look carefully around
the field and try to find an existing track, to avoid destroying crops.
