Åbrott Domarring (Stone Circle) — Fieldnotes

This stone circle (judge's ring) is 18 metres in diametre
and consists of 22 stones, which is between 0,6 to 1,2 metres high.
I the centre of the circle there is a low stone.
During a examination and restoring project in 1940, a burnt
human was found in the centre, together with a cup made of glass,
a sharpening stone and a comb made of bone.

Infoboard on site in Swedish, English and German.

The stones itself can't be seen in GE, but you can see a
circular clearcut in the forest north or the road.

How to get there
From the museum of rock carvings at Vitlycke, drive for 8,6 kilomters
southward, on the tarmac road west of the museum.
Turn left onto the gravel road where you see the
'sightings sign' and drive for 1,9 kilometres,
and the site is on your left

Greby Gravfält (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery) — Folklore

A long time ago, a band of scottish raiders arrived in Tanum, and
traveled into the Bullarebygden.
On their way back to the shore, they were attacked several times,
the first time around the church of Tanum. The survivors fled to the coast, and at Prästmyren, one of the chiefs were buried in Valbrets Grav.
The last fight was here at Greby, where the rest of the raiders were
killed and buried.
