This big boulder of Rokkestenen
is located at the top of the burial
chamber in a long dolmen, out in a field
near Ring 2, west of Hillerød, at the
Hillerød South exit. The dolmen itself
is now known as the Rokkestenen,
"Rocking Stone", and measures 36 times
17 meters. It was formerly called Kong
Kelds Høj, and since the stone can no
longer rock, you should probably go back
to that name. In former times, it could
rock 22 centimetres. The tomb was built in the
Peasant Stone Age between the years 3950
- 2800 BC.
