GUIDED TOUR OF THE BORRE PARK
In the period between around 600 - 900 CE, no less than nine major burial mounds were built at Borre. In addition, there are three large stone mounds, contributing to the majestic character of the area. This is the most concentrated collection of major burial mounds in Northern Europe. We also know Borre from historical sources. The great saga-writer Snorri Sturlason claims that a mythical lineage - the Ynglinga-lineage - is buried here. They are said to have been descendants of the god Frey and the jotun woman Gerd, and include Norway's first king.
