Örelid's Grave field

Behind the church in Tjärby, Örelid’s grave field stands out against the horizon, situated on a beach embankment from the final stage of the Ice Age. There are 36 raised stones and 4 mounds from the Bronze Age. One of the mounds was examined in 1930. The archeologists found a grave with a bronze dagger and double buttons. The raised stones are from the Iron Age, and many of them have local names, like “Kyrkgumman” (the church lady).
