About Gamme - gravfelt

By the Gamme farms is one of Hadeland's biggest burial grounds. The Bergen main road / Pilgrim Way runs straight through the grounds, which are over 2,000 years old. The oldest tomb is from about 200 BC, while the youngest is from the period 600- 1050 AD. The burial ground has covered at least 23 burial barrows and today 21 of the barrows are still preserved. Many of the barrows seem untouched while some have a dent at the top that might stem from looting.

Getting there: Take off Route 4 in Gran west towards Granavollen. Follow Ringdalslinna (Fv 33) past Granavollen and turn left on Gammevegen (Fv 35). Follow Gammevegen scant 2 km. Here is the burial ground on both sides of the road.
