This book presents results and interpretations from The Sacred Hills Project - a subproject within The West Coast Line Project run by the National Heritage Board, Archaeological Excavations Department, with its branch office in Lund. The West Coast Line Project is a large-scale contract archaeology project, occasioned by the National Rail Administration’s expansion of the West Coast Railway Line in western Scania. The subproject and the book focus on the Late Neolithic-Bronze Age period, i.e. 2300-500 cal. BC, while other subprojects and archaeological periods are presented in other books from the project. The railway, and thus investigation area, is about 40 kilometers long reaching from the city of Helsingborg to Kävlinge, passing through many burial grounds.
