Geocache Description:

Fantastiskt mysig plats med många stensättningar och domarringar.
Cachen innehöll vid publiceringen en geocoin Lotus Compass, trådrulle och glaskula.

Tjuvbacken är ett gravfält från järnåldern för någon närbelägen by. Detta är en rest av det forna folklandet Möre som bildar landskapet Småland. Ett utflyktsmål för en picknick eller bara ströva fritt i hagen.
Där finns 3 gravhögar, 52 skeppssättningar och 14 domarringar.
Det är skyltat mot ”Tyska Bruket” och här kan man köra in för att parkera 200 meter längre fram på grusvägen. Där finns även en skylt om Tjuvbacken.
Om du istället väljer att parkera vid P2 (rekommenderas) så får du en trevlig promenad upp till Tjuvbacken.

Tjuvbacken (Thieves Hills) is a burial ground containing 3 cairns, 52 stone settings and 14 "judgement rings" stone circles. About ten of the burials have been investigated. They were found to contain swords, gaming pieces and earthenware sherds. One grave contained the remains of sacrifical animals, including a dog, a horse and a pig. The finds could be dated to between the 4th and 9th centuris A.D
You drive towards Tyska bruket, and about 200m in there is parkingplace. There is also a sign showing the history of Tjuvbacken.
If you choose to park at P2 (recommended), you will have a pleasant walk up to Tjuvbacken.
