The first communities

The first communities and the first people in the table mountain landscape – what did the rocks and the soil mean to them? About 5,300 to 4,700 years before, the people who lived in Falbygden created impressive constructions: The megalithic tombs. Imagine how they must have dragged the boulders through the landscape to raise them over their dead!

Great viking farms, monasteries, kings, bloody battles and Swedish crusaders. The area between the table mountains has been the scene of important events in Swedish history. The fertile soil was the reason that large farms and communities grew right here.
