Röshults ringröse

Ring Cairn


This is one of Sweden's biggest ring-cairn.
To me, it rather looks like a fort, but the Swedish
heritage board classifies it as a ring-cairn, partly
because it's in a middle of a grave site, with another flat cairn
and 2 stone rings immediately beside it, and 4 more stone rings
i the forest. 200 metres north of the ring-cairn lies another cairn,
which you will pass if you visit the site.

The ring-cairn is visible in GE, and the cairn and stone ring
immediately north of it.

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 left in the T-shaped roundabout,
and drive for 4 kilometres, and turn left at the sign "Bratteborg".
After 1.9 kilometres, turn left at the yellow sign "Röshult",
drive up to the farm, (where you see a blue sign "Gravfält 2" turn right and follow the gravel road until you see a a 'No entry' sign.
Turn right onto the small track road, after 100 metres you see
the north cairn to your left, but continue another 150 metres for
a parking spot. Walk south on the track road for 100 metres
and the site is on your right.
