Hindalebyn's burial-ground

Burial-ground from the Iron Age

Hindalebyn is one of several Iron Age burial-grounds to be found in the area around Dals-Ed. People began to bury their dead here nearly 2000 years ago and did so until the arrival of Christianity in the 11th century.

The burial-ground belonged to a farm or village nearby. There is still a farm, Västra Hindalebyn, close by. Hindalebyn's burial-ground consists of around 40 graves. Most are barrows and flat graves, so called also a trident grave and a stone circle. The stone circle has 7 stones with a diameter o 5 meters. During Iron Age it was common to burn the deceased before burial.
