Home > Tallinn > Rebala Bronze Age Graves


Only five kilometres from Tallinn, lies village Rebala, known from the biggest ancient burial place in Estonia.


36 round stones from Bronze Age (8th-7th century BC) are archaeological find of unique scale. The deceased were buried with head pointing north, and the round shape of graves may represent a anthropocentric point of view. Together with bodies were buried some every-day use objects, like shaving knife, pincers or spindle. This finds are now displayed in a museum of the reserve.
