Helge, Steinkjer (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

Take road 762 towards Ogndal from the center of Steinkjer, after about 2,5 km follow the sign to Gravfelt 1,5 km. The site is located in a residental area, but has enough space.

There are 2 large standing stones, each about 5 meters tall.

There is also a stonecircle with a center stone. And some large burial mounds.

Placed in the garden of the Tingvoll Park Hotell in Steinkjer the remains of this stone shipsetting consists of 38 stones (of originally probably 45).

It's 9 meters at the widest, and must originally have been about 40 meters long.

The area once sported other stone circles, 3 standing stones and several burialmounds according to a map drawn in 1816 by L.D. Klüwer (published in Klüwers Norsk mindesmerker 1823)
