Kalmosärkkä Prehistoric Trail

Kalmosärkkä and its findings invite you to learn about the settlement and history of Juntusranta. The place is a narrow sandbank over a kilometre long. Kalmosärkkä is a prehistoric habitation site, inhabited as early as 6000 years before the beginning of our calendar in the early Stone Age. Later in the historical period, the Sandbank served as a temporary cemetary for the dead, from where they were transported to the churchyard. This is where Kalmosärkkä as “Cremational sandbank” got its name.
