On the fields behind the farms and the houses in Skamby, you’ll find a nice little passage grave and a round barrow with an interior chamber. Skeletal remains and various antiquities, including a battle ax, have been found in the passage grave. The chamber is built of 9 side stones and is 3.10 m long, 1.75 m wide, with 2 cap stones. The hallway faces southeast and is 3.45 m long; it has 3 side stones for one and two for the other side.

There are 15-20 cup and ring marks on one cap stone, perhaps symbols of fertility or the sun.

DIRECTIONS:

From the "main street" Bredgade in Skamby, you drive 300 meters off Brøndstrupvej. Between Brøndstrupvej 57 and 59, there is a gate in the fence which says "STI” (it means trail). Behind it, a grass trail passes over the fields to the site.

Be prepared for slightly uneven terrain and nettles.
