Havängsdösen

Havängsdösen

Havängsdösen on Österlen is one of the most famous stone chamber tombs in Sweden and lies majestically on the coast of the Baltic Sea

Havängsdösen is a stone chamber grave (megalithic grave) in Haväng on Österlen from the Neolithic period, also called Neolithic. The doze was built about 5,500 years ago during the funnel beam culture older phase. For a long time the sea meadow was hidden under sand, but it is said to have been uncovered during a heavy autumn storm in 1843.

The dovecote, which is a long dovecote, consists of several boulders that form a burial chamber. The roof block has cracked after some idiots burned/grilled the ancient tomb in 2015, so the public is strongly discouraged from climbing on the roof of the tomb - both for safety reasons and out of respect for the works of our ancestors.

Excavations were carried out in 1869, when human skeletons and a flint axe were found. Usually, not many finds are found in dozes, but some also believe that the grave may have been looted earlier.
