Stammershalle Ancient Burial Site
The Stammershalle Burial Site East of Tejn on the North coast of Bornholm dates back to a village here in the Mesolithic time between 9000 and 6400 BC. A number of stone tools from that time have been found during excavations in the area, from when a group of hunter-gatherers lived in a small group of huts here.
Stammershalle was used as a burial site between the late Bronze Age in 1300-1100 BC and the Iron Age around 0-400 AD.
This is the view from Stammershalle towards West - the close peninsula is Tejn, and the town further in the hazy background is Allinge.
This is one of the Iron Age graves from 0-400 AD. The grave is a stone coffin surrounded by a circle of smooth round rocks brought up from the coast.
This is the view East from Stammershalle. The great view over the sea and along the coast is a typical choice of location for many ancient cultures - the dead were buried at locations with a great view.
