Prehistoric sacrificial boulder with cup marks, at its original location near the railroad. The stone was probably used for ritual sacrifice, maybe of grains of corn.

Offersten med skålgropar (älvkvarnar), på dess ursprungliga plats nära järnvägen. Stenen användes troligen för rituella offer, möjligen av sädeskorn.
