The transport route for the stemstones of the sunship

The beach between Simrishamn and Brantevik is the place in southern Sweden where the beautiful ”kvarsit-kambrical” variety of sandstone appears, i.e. the Scanian marble. The constructors of Ales stenar probably transported the stemstones, and the keelstone on the ground in SE, from Brantevik, whose marbled flat rocks corresponds with these. The finest variety of stones have been put in place to symbolize the most important periods during a solar year, i.e. the winter solstice and the summer solstice.
