Stone Circle at Veen


The stone circle at Veen consists of seven large stone blocks, originally upright, that are arranged in a circle. The stone ring is believed to date from the Migration Period (400-600 AD). Archaeological research in Norway and abroad has shown that stone circles marked early-Iron-Age graves; these were perhaps also a site for praying to the gods of the time and for various other ceremonies. The stone circle at Veen is one of two registered stone circles in Hedmark County and is located on flat woodland about 500 yards south-west of the Veenskrysset junction. Public access via the Kirkerunden/Stenringen footpath.
