Christiania (Cup Marked Stone) — Fieldnotes

I can't say exactly how many cups there are on this stone as I lost count (got bored counting) after 30 or so. They seem like the real deal, though in the 4 years since I saw it in the real, I've not been able to find any information about it.

The stone looks like it could have once stood up, though now it's propped on top of four small stones making a strange kind of not-dolmen.

It sits just at the Syddyssen end of the bridge between the Maelkebotten and Syddyssen areas of the strange and semi-autonomous hippy/radgey commune of Christiania, in an old military barracks on the seaward edge of Copenhagen.

Stabelhøje — Fieldnotes

I wasn't able to visit sites on this visit due to my not having a car. The buses would have been too complicated so I didn't even try. We had been to the family Summer House and I persuaded a stop here as there is a carpark. There are two Barrows and can be seen from most places around here.
The information notice tells us that the Barrows are 3000-3500 years old and that they have not been disturbed by excavation, the pictures show what they may contain from excavations at other sites.
There are quite a lot of sites in this area but persuading people who aren't interested to stop isn't easy.

Jelling (Complex) — Fieldnotes

Climbing the eastern-most mound gives an excellent perspective on the entire site. It is basically an earthen path and will only take you a minute if you are a strong runner. C Michael Hogan Posted by C Michael Hogan
