Oldtidshøjene ved Ydby Skjold

The ancient cementery 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 fjord.

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