The area has served as a graveyard for the people in a nearby village during the time 500-1050 AD. There are totally 17 graves, most of them between 7 and 15 metres in diameter, except for a couple of larger graves, which are 19 and 24 metres wide.

Because of treasure hunting and agriculture many of the graves are not intact. A smaller grave was examined in the end of the 19th century. The findings consisted of burnt bones, pieces of a crock and fragments of iron.
