The oldest has been dated back to the bronze age, and the other which lay near the top is dated to around 200AD. This was a womans grave in which were found two bronze fasteners with silver decoration, they were of west Norway origins and very rare.

In 1847 a coffin of decorated stone was found. The figures were the same as those often found in stone carvings, a sun and a ship and on the stone the pattern of what could have been a wall tapestry with fringes. This was a very special find. Right beside Mjelthaugen, there is a holy white stone.Mjelthaugen is a historical preservation site.
