Legends: Knud Larsen was called Vice Knud, and it was told that he made his wisdom out at the Breddyssen. Every New Year's Eve, he rode out to the dolmens, and there he learned his arts.
 
Vilhelm Knudsen told in 1936 - "I remember from my childhood that my grandfather sacrificed to the High-People, the legendary folks, every year. It happened Christmas Eve in the late afternoon. Knud told his wife to take a basket and put some of the best in the house: Cake, pork, sausage, etc. In addition, he added some money to the basket. Then he rode on a certain of his horses to the ground, rode 3 times around the dolmens and then put the food and the money on a flat stone. In the morning the offering was always gone.


There are many deep cup marks.
