(Skön 72:1, 72:2)
On the border of the residential areas of "Västland" and "Birsta" in Skön Parish, Sundsvall there are two large burial mounds on either side of a walking path. They date to 350-450 during the Migration Period "Folkvandringstiden" and seem out of place with modern houses that sprung up around them. One is 20m in diameter, 3m high and the other 18m in diameter, 2.5m high. They were once part of a larger grave field. The cultural historian Nils Johan Ekdahl (1799–1870) visited in 1868 and recorded five burial mounds here. Strangely, later Karl Sidenbladh (1840–1911) recorded 13 mounds and wrote "nedanför byn äro steniga högar" (below the village are stony mounds). Gottfrid Adlerz who visited 1898-99 recorded 4 mounds in Västland and six in Birsta.
In 1843 a farmer named Erik Persson found a gold ring while harrowing his fields, probably from one of the mounds that had been plowed away. In 1868 Sidenbladh explains finds that "were found some years ago" in the larger mound. They found iron items: 1 spear, 2 knives, 1 chisel, a pair of wool-scissors, 1 barbed arrowhead and a stone with grooves. At the time he believed the stone to be a whetstone but now we know it to be a fire-laying stone (eldslagningssten). Adlerz also excavated two mounds, one of which is probably one of these remaining two. In one he found a coal layer and cremated bone. In the other he found 7 bronze-beads made of spiraled wire, a green glass bead, cremated human bone, some clumps of burnt red clay and an unburnt femur of a hare.
