In the 1930's the grave field south of Ströböhög was examined,
The barrow is about 35 metres in diametre, and was originally higher.
Today the height is about 10 metres.
The scientist Rickard Dybeck acted together with an earlier owner
of the Strö farm for saving the barrow from total obliteration,
when there was a gravel mining pit on the barrow's east and south side.
How to get there:
Drive on highway E18 to the city of Köping.
The site is immediately north of the crossing with road 250.
Folklore says that Ströböhög was created by a giant, who was coming
from the Dalarna , carrying a sack with gravel. When the giant
arrived to this place, he stopped and looked over the lake Mälaren.
When he stood there, there was leaking so much gravel from his sack,
so the barrow was created.
According to another folklore, which was written on paper in 1667,
there is a cottage made of oakwood inside the barrow, where a light burns sometimes.
The key to the cottage is kept in the Nyckelberget (Key mountain).
Also there a light burns sometimes. A dragon is watching over
Ströböhög, and it's sometimes flies over to the Nyckelberget.
