Fodor's Review

Just north of Aalborg at Nørresundby (still considered a part of greater Aalborg) is Lindholm Høje, a Viking and Iron Age burial ground where stones placed either in the shape of a ship or in triangles denote where men were buried and oval or circular groups of stones show where women were buried. In total, there are about 682 graves dating from AD 400 to shortly before AD 1000, when the site was completely covered by sand drift, which preserved both the graves and a freshly ploughed field. At the bottom of the hill there is a museum that chronicles Viking civilization.
