Few areas in Norway have a consistency of burial monuments form the iron ages like this area; approximately 90 monuments. Kongshaugen in Flisaker is the largest. It has been a power center for several centuries, at least until 1000 years A.D. The rich calcareous soil and local climate, lay the foundation for the prosperity back to the iron ages. If pilgrims crossed Brumunddal at Spikdalen, is it most likely they also were passing through here.
