Great to be able to go down into a burial mound! Interesting lecture. Maybe could put a baja-maja there for the time being.

A nice short stop worth a visit if you are passing by. It is a tunnel with one view point in the end and outside you can take a fika under roof while being outside.

An excellent well preserved ancient site from the bronze age. The level of conservation and access to the burial is beyond a shadow of a doubt well planned and executed. A fun time was had by the entire family during our visit.

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
