Kittakull – an unusual Bronze Age mound
The older Bronze Age burial mounds, which are built of sand and overgrown with grass, are considerably more unusual than large burial mounds of stone. The Kittakull mound in Trotteslöv, north of Ljungby, was an impressive tomb about 23-25 meters in diameter and four meters high, when it was divided straight in the middle during a road construction in 1949.
Under a round stone pack, which was 1.3 meters above the natural ground surface, a bronze sword was discovered. The blade was slightly elliptical and the grip decorated with a rhombic knob at the end. The sword can be seen in the exhibition.
