Abstract

Heimdall's Stones at Vitemölla is an archaeological monument of stones arranged in circles. It has served as an archaeoastronomic observatory. It is founded in a fossil land surface now covered by half a metre of eolian sand. In this paper, the AA. will present the findings and chronostratigraphy in association with Heimdall's Stones, which seems to occupy a key position for the understanding of Bronze Age culture in the region and distant trading overseas. They combine the recorded sea-level changes with the C 14-dated bog stratigraphy and the observed stratigraphy at Heimdall's Stones
