Lindsbjerg

Langdyssen Langdyssen på Lindsbjerg er 27½ m lang, seks m bred og 1 m høj. Den har to gravkamre, hvor begge i dag er uden dæksten. Omkring højen har stået en række store randsten, men kun enkelte er bevarede. Dyssen er fra den tidlige bondestenalder omkring 3500-3100 f.Kr.

Den dobbelte jættestue Højen omkring kamrene er en stærkt pløjet langhøj; 15 m lang og 7½ m bred. De to, ret små, kamre er begge ødelagt. De har oprindeligt været ovale med en gang ud til højsiden med flere store kamre og gange. Af randstensrækken omkring højen er kun 2 sten bevarede. Jættestuen er fra den mellemste bondestenalder omkring 3100 f.Kr.

For begge fortidsminder gælder det at de ikke står som oprindeligt. Dette skyldes at den markante beliggenhed højt hævet i landskabet under 2. Verdenskrig tiltrak den tyske besættelsesmagt, hvor de brugte stedet som luftmeldepost mod de allierede fly. Derudover gennemførte Nationalmuseet en desværre yderst uheldig restaurering i 1945. Derfor ser du hverken en jættestue eller en langdysse som de så ud i vores fortid, men besøg alligevel stedet og nyd den utroligt smukke udsigt.

The Long Barrow The Long Barrow at Lindsbjerg is 27½ m long, six m wide and 1 m tall. It has two burial chambers but both miss their covering stones today. The hillock used to be encircled by stones but only few are still extant. The long barrow is from the Late Stone Age around 3500-3100 B.C.

The Passage Grave The hillock around the burial chambers is 15 m long and 7½ m wide. The two very small chambers are both destroyed. They used to be oval with a passage to more passages and larger chambers. The hillock used to be encircled by stones but only two are still extant. The Passage Grave is from the Early Stone Age.

Both relics of the past are not preserved as they were originally. This is both due to the fact that the German occupying power during the Second World War used the site as an air defence warning service station and that the National Museum made a rather unfortunate restoration in 1945. For that reason neither the barrow nor the passage grave are today preserved correctly. But pay the site a visit anyway and enjoy the scenic view.
