This environment is so pure. The knowing that most of the mounds had remained untouched adds to the experience. Altough just one mound had been excavated, an attempt was also made by two other mounds by examining via smaller shafts. Charcoal and burnt bones were discovered. Theory is that existing mounds were used too, by installing new graves in the 10th century.
At the time we entered the park, we were the only ones.
In Viking Age art, the Borre style is derived from the art style first recognised in a group of gilt-bronze harness mounts recovered from a ship grave in Borre mound cemetery near the village of Borre, Vestfold, Norway. Borre Style prevailed in Scandinavia from the late 9th through to the late 10th century, a timeframe supported by dendrochronological data supplied from sites with characteristically Borre Style artefacts.
