Geocache Description:

Cacrificial well.

Some documents and rumors tell us religious, heathen, ceremonies have occurred here for more than 2500 year.

Long before the church was build, here was a place for invocation of old times Gods. Just here, 30 meters along the hedge in front of you, a well with remarkable clear water was welling, and a small heathen temple was raised. People came from widely away, to become good health and offer to their Gods. At that time, the old asa-Gods, Tor, Oden , Balder, and more.

The church was raised in 11th century, and even than superstition and offering, idolatry was normal here. Because people were very generous, it was a good income for the church. Around 40-50 riksdaler, a fortune at that time, flow in every year.

There was one inscription beside the holy well that said: “The more money you give, the more healthy you became and are given place in heaven”. It required a royal edict in the 17th century to stop the superstition sacrifice and hedonic ceremonial. But still in the 18th hundreds, some magic things have happened here.

So why not drop a coin there for better life and luck!

Cache is a 0,5 lit box with log, pen.
