On top of the hill

On top of the hill

This hill at Kalvsvik in Österhaninge is called Kikarberget. Which could translate to Lookout Hill or something like that. On the top, not far from the mystery rock, you will still find some remains of an old hill fort. The name Kalvsvik is said to come from Kalsvi which was the name of a farm here, some 700 years ago. Long before that Kalvsvi could have been a place for offerings and rituals. There are a few rune stones nearby, here's one . There's also a big ancient grave field in the area and a possible offering stone on another hill.
