|This barrow was partially excavated in 1972.
Then the archaeologists found out that the barrow is built on a
natural hill, so the barrow itself measures 40 metres in diametre, and 4 metres high, the total including the natural hill is 50-60 metres in diametre and 7 metres high.
The name 'Ivars kulle' (Ivar's hill) traces back to a man with the name
Givar Gunnarsson, who in the years 1717-1756 owned the land around it.
Info board on site in Swedish, English and German.
How to get there:

The site is after another 300 metres.
