Vintage Weekly & Our World Tuesday: In Smålandsstenar, Sweden there is a henge monument, probably a gravesite about 2500 years old. It is called Domarringarna in Smålandsstenar. Translated this means Judgement rings at Småland’s stones. Tradition said judgements were made here, but that is now considered a tale. The gravesite lies close to the river Nissan and is located in Villstad parish. The name Smålandsstenar came about when the railway was built in the nineteenth century and consequently a small community grew at the railway station taking its name from the stones in the county of Småland.

The picture is taken with an analog camera around year 2000 and was scanned by the photoshop that developed the film. I have enhanced the rather dull scan for publishing on the web.
