I had been looking for this place for quite a while as I’ve read about the carvings in a book from the early 20th century.
This is a bronze age burial mound , on top of it is a rock with feet carvings.
The symbol of the foot is often found in connection with a female figure – suggesting a connection. Some scholars have even proposed that the foot is a symbol of the ancient goddess Nerthus (mentioned by the Roman historian Tacitus in the first century AD in his famous work “Germania” where he met with the remote Suebi tribes.
Before literacy was wide spread, the use of house marks was common, resembling runes these marks were often used on houses. These were found on one of the pillars inside a medieval pigrimage church in Scania, near the church is a sacred spring believed to be from the pre-christian, pagan time – thus this has been a site of religious importance for a very long time.

Once upon a time kilns like these were used to produce quicklime – hence the name “Limekiln”.
