Hornsåsen, Västmanland

 

The gravefield at Ridge Hornsåsen in Rytterne Parish is the largest gravefield in the province of Västmanland. The burials have only been investigated to a limited extent, but the gravefield seems to have been in use during the Bronze Age as well as the Early and Late Iron Ages. The gravefield shows both cairns and mounds as well as different types of stone settings.
