Lindholm Høje - Viking burial site

A major Viking burial site and former settlement situated to the north of and overlooking the city of Aalborg in Denmark. The first major excavation of 700 graves began in 1952, although earlier excavations, such as that in 1889, had been conducted.

The southern part of Lindholm Høje dates to 1000 – 1050 AD, while the northern part is significantly earlier, dating back to 700 – 1000 AD. The term Høje is derived from the Old Norse word haugr meaning hill or mound.
