Early Scandinavian burial mound marked by stones laid out in a ship-pattern - a practice that was common in Scandinavia from the Bronze Age through the Viking Age. This particular one is situated in Anundshög, Västerås, Sweden, and dates to some time before the Viking Age (exact date unsure). The mound is 60 meters in diameter and 9 meters high.
