Haugen på Skramnes
Behind this hill lies the farm Skramnes. I have briefly mentioned Skramnes in a couple of my posts before (check out: The chestnut tree and Sweet beeznes). Since then I have learned that the hill on the photo, Skramneshaugen, is an ancient burial mound from the Iron Age and that the farm Skramnes is one of the oldest settlements here in Eiker. I was quite intrigued when I heard this, as I have spent many nights after slumber parties in my childhood at this farm, not being able to sleep. My friend and I used to fantasize that there were ghosts in the attic, and that it was their chains we heard.. After all, maybe we were right?
