This big boulder of Breddysse is found on a farm yard. It is part of one of two dolmens (3500-2800 BC), which have been exposed. Besides from the boulder, here are two dolmens (which the boulder is part of), and on the big boulder, rock art from the Bronze Age (3000-1200 BC) is found: Cup marks and two ships. The bigger ship is 132 centimetres long, the shorter 36 (47?) centimetres.

Location: Støvlebækvej 8A, 4200 Slagelse.
GPS: 55.432892, 11.230337

Size: 1,2 metres high, 2,6 metres wide and 4,1 meters long. The weight is above 15 tons.

Meaning of the name: Wide dolmen after the dolmen it is part of.

Material: Grenade-bearing migmatitic gneiss.

Origin: ?

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.

According to some locals, a king should be buried under the large boulder, and his queen under the smaller one.


There are many deep cup marks.


The big ship: 132 centimetres


The little ship: 36 centimetres - or is is 47?
