This big boulder of Sekshøjstenen is found on a field, around 1500 meters north-east of the village Højby. It is part of a well preserved Megalitgrave. As I haven't found any other name for it, I have named it after the tomb, which is also known as the Højby Runddysse. The tomb was excawated in 1825 and the chamber is open today. The entrance is narrow, and the chamber not that big, but surpricently high; around 1,9 metres. On the top of the stone is several cup markings.

Location: Stenstrupvej 17, 4573 Højby.
GPS: 55.918837, 11.576010.

Size: 0,8 metres high, 1,9 metres wide and 3,3 meters long.

Meaning of the name: Named after the tomb: "Six mount"

Material: ?

Origin: ?

Legend: ?
