Bronce Age Barrows at "Oldtidshøjene" near Ydby Skjold

The ancient cemetery on Ydby Heath is the country´s largest group of Bronze Age barrows, counting 49 in all! 

Take a walk around this area and sense history amongst the burial mounds that stretch right down to the part of the Limfjord, called Skibstedfjord.

Imagine Knud (Canute) the Great´s 1.000-strong fleet lying anchored there before sailing off on his expedition to England.
