Molen Beach Aerial

An aerial of Mølen Beach gives you a good idea of the layout. Note the oldest mounds in amongst the scrubby trees furthest from the water. (The biggest ones are marked with an “R.”) As the land uplifted over millennia, the beach grew wider and folks added more burials closer to the water. (This geological activity is what helps archaeologists date the mounds.) Along the shore you can see a ship-shaped mound, a “captain’s” mound and rows of “sailor” mounds.
