The oldest stone setting are triangular with concave sides and Bautastein in the center. From somewhat later time round and oval originate, and from the Wikingerzeit the schiffsförmigen stone setting with clear marking of the Steven by larger stones. These graves originate from the time between 800-1.000 n. Chr., thus from the time of the kings Gorm, Harald blue tooth and Sven fork beard and show still no influences of the Christianisierung.
North of the grave field the associated settlement was examined. Wooden bars, wells and the post holes of houses arise numerously. In the places, where pit houses had been, one found Spinnwirtel and Web weights, which could indicate the use of the pit houses as Web chambers. A part of the post holes at the southeast side of the grave field was filled out with cement and shows the size of the houses.
While the excavation in the years 1952-56 also a freshly plowed field became discovered, which one due to a Münzfundes on approximately 1,050 n. Chr. to date can. Briefly after plowing a storm with sand escape began and the field was completely covered. In the time, when the area was inhabited, sand escape was constant troubling. Gradually all country was covered and approximately around 1.100 n. Chr. the settlement was finally left.
