Stenskib

Stenskib Urliksberg, in fact Stenhed, Östra Herrestad, Simrishamns kommun… yeah, you got to love Google – sarcasm… is in fat no berg at all. Flat field with a ship shaped standing stones. Small stones, so if you are looking for Stonehenge size…

You may be disappointed.

I was not. Although it was windy and cold.

And amazing.

For sure it is much visible without wet ground and grass…

But…

Still stunning.

Yes, this piece is hidden, still, if you know where it is, you will find it. It is about 52/50 on 14 meters and orientated northwest-southeast.

Its about 30 stones…

Probably Bronze or Iron Age, still… not investigated…

And even as an archaeologist… I sometimes think maybe it is better?

Because people do not care at all.

And should they? Yes… this is a past they are also walking, but somehow nobody gets it. Was it really also used as an astronomical calendar? 

Or maybe something totally different.
