Here on Boeryds gravfält (Grave field of Boeryd), you can find
2 tri-radial cairns, 4 standing stones and 17 stone circles.
The tri-radial cairns is 13-20 metres long, and 0,4 high,
with the ends pointing at E-SSW-NNW and NE-SSE-WNW.
The stone rings are 4-10 metres in diametre, consisting of 5 to 9 stones
The site was restored in the 1930's.

Swedish national heritage board site code: Månsarp 25:1
Info board on site with Swedish, English and German
Some of the stone rings can be seen in GE (between the trees).

How to get there:
From highway E4, take the exit at Torsvik N (about 7 kilometres south of Jönköping)
and drive westwards to the town Taberg.
In Taberg, turn right in the T-shaped roundabout, drive 300 metres and
then turn left and go under the railroad bridge. After 3 kilometres on this road
there is a sign "Boerydsgravfältet" pointing to the right, and a few metres into the forest there
is a parking sign. Park there and the site is in front of you.

Taberg was once a mining area, in the town you will pass a museum if you
follow the site-directions.

A good spot to have a coffe break is on the top of the mountain in the town.
Follow the site-directions, but when you have passed the railroad bridge, turn left
after 160 metres, and follow the windling road to the top. There you will find
a restaurant, and a marvellous view over the neighbourhood.
(In swedish, but there is an english link at the
bottom of the page)
