Eastern Norway Vestfold og Telemark SANDEFJORD

The burial mounds of Fevang

  • Fevang, Sandefjord
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Fevang is one of a total of 37 selected cultural environments with regional and national heritage in Vestfold county.

Archaeologists in the 19th century were struck by how many burial mounds and other past memories they encountered. The explanation is that the "main road" went here, and the soil was suitable for the agriculture at that time. Farmers at Fevang found many objects in graves that they had dug in to or removed in the 1800s and early 1900s. Those who were historically interested sent them to the Museum (Oldsaksamlingen).

Archaeologist Nicolay Nicolaysen went here and dug out many of the burial mounds. It was concluded that at Fevang - there were just about all the kinds of graves one could imagine from the time before Christianity. Nicolaysen found out that there have been buried people here for more than 1000 years - from the time around Christ's birth until the Christian cemeteries were established. In addition, the rich grave discoveries showed that many of the buried had been powerful men and women.

Among other objects, a gold jewel called "Berlokk" was found in a women's grave, along with two gold beads, two blue glass beads, a hairpin and two clips of bronze, ceramic and burned bones. The tomb is from the period 0-400 after Christ. (old iron age).
