At Amborneset, a number of automatically protected cultural monuments have been registered. As early as 1879, Karl Rygh mentioned several of the tombs located there.
“In the parish of Drakestrand, no other survivor has been able to be traced back to some smaller, elongated mounds that were to be found on Omborneset or the outermost point of the Hindrems peninsula.”
(Rygh, K., 1879: DKNVS Writings. Permanent relics and antiquities in the northern Trondheim county)
Farthest east in the lower area towards the sea is a star-shaped tomb.
The tomb resembles a three-armed star. For more information, origin and distribution of triangular graves follow this link.
The symbolism of the triangle is often associated with shamanism and Norse mythology. Where the topological design language of the tombs is associated with the similarity of the world tree Yggdrasil. In this way, these tombs are closely linked to the Norse religion.
They tell us that someone has entered the grave in older or more recent times. Maybe to secure valuable items? In addition, some of the mounds have been slightly damaged at the edges or disappeared completely due to construction or agricultural activities in recent times.
In the description below, it can be seen that in the middle of the burial mound there is a core mound in the mound where the grave is located.
The Civil War period or civil wars is a term in Norwegian history used for the period between 1130 and 1240. On 18 June 1199, the so-called Battle of Strindfjorden outside Amborneset took place between King Sverre Sigurdsson and the Birkebeiner army and Bishop Nikolaus Arnesson with his bagler army.
On this day it was reported to King Sverre, who then lived at Sverresborg in Nidaros (present-day Trondheim), that the bagels ** should be located by Hynne on Frostalandet, which is located on the other side of the fjord. When King Sverre and his army came towards them with their ships, they withdrew on the north side of Tautra and across the fjord.
Outside Amborneset it later in the day led to clashes between the two armies. According to the sources, the battle was hard and long lasting. Five ships sank and several ships were taken by King Sverre’s army, but Bishop Nikolaus and several of the baglers escaped. Who knows what is hiding on the seabed outside Amborneset?
In 2009, archaeologists from the NTNU Science Museum in Trondheim carried out investigations in connection with the establishment of the rest area. Among other things, many cooking pits from the Iron Age were found in the area. Some of the cooking pits that were found were more than 2 meters in diameter and may have been used during gatherings or parties where many people participated.
Few post holes and no house structures were found. It is nevertheless probable that there has been settlement nearby. The find of three fireplaces, remains of a black earth layer and the burial mounds that lie around here indicate this. The finds from these excavations, together with all the burial mounds, and a legend about a stone fortress on Borgen, point out Hindrum as a historically important area.
