Mannehøj barrow

Take a walk in the past

Mannehøj is the vestiges of a Bronze Age barrow and there are also traces from the Neolithic Age in the form of furrows made with an ard, an early kind of plough.

Mannehøj was first excavated by the then landowner in 1902, and a bronze sword and a spiral ring of gold were found, which are currently held at the National Museum of Denmark. The ring was found deep in the centre of the mound. The barrow contained a central tomb, which was surrounded by large boulders.
