Geocache Description:


Välikankaan Kalmisto

Kaakkurin Välikankaan kalmisto on alunperin sijainnut saarella Oulujoen suussa. Maan kohoamisen myötä alue muuttui vuoden 500 vaiheilla Kempeleenlahteen pistäväksi niemeksi. Nykyisin matkaa meren rantaan on noin 2 kilometriä.

Kalmistoon kuuluu neljä hautaröykkiötä. Kalmisto tutkittiin kokonaisuudessaan 1987-88 ja kalmiston suurin röykkiö sisälsi seitsemän hautausta. Haudoista löydettiin yhteensä 12 miehen ruumiit, sekä aseita, työkaluja ja henkilökohtaisia esineitä.
