The grave field of Lekebacken were used for a very long time -
the oldest part is the cairn (17 metres in diametre), which probably dates back to 3000BCE,
and the youngest ones is the low earth mounds that is scattered around the area - about 1000 years old.
The graves has not been investigated, so the ages are estimates
made by the Swedish National Heritage board

The stone circle is 13 metres in diametre and consiste of 9 stones,
1.2 to 2 metres high.

From highway E20, take the exit to road 51 just south of Kumla,
and drive for about 7.6 kilometres.
