A site on the northern shore of Limfjord in Jutland, used as a gravefield from the prehistoric period until the Viking era, including a Viking ship cemetery. In the 11th century it was overlaid by a Viking village which functioned as a small trading and industrial settlement. One interesting find was a spoked wagon wheel. The settlement went out of use around 1100 due to the silting-up of the fjord and continual sand drifts.
