This big boulder of Øm
found within a 5000 year old tomb,
making part of the sealing. It can not
be seen from outside, but the chamber is
open to the public, and an experience to
it self. Here are actually several
massive boulders, and it made me wonder;
how many my ancestors have hidden away
These stones have not been given a name
as fare as I can figure, and I just
named them after the nearby village -
and tomb. This is the boulder in the
left/southern end of the tomb. The tomb
was discovered in 1832.
The burial chamber is 7 meters long and
2 meters wide and 1,7 metres high, built
of 15 uprights and 4 slabs and with an
entrance of 7 pairs of uprights, of
which only 3 innermost pair is covered.
The burial chamber is covered by a mound
of earth covered with scattered trees
after a recent restoration.
Klostergårdsvej 60, 4320 Lejre. - cross
