The south dolmen measures 2 m by 2 m by 1.5 m high. It faces 110 degrees E. The chamber provided bone fragments, an amber bead, flint blades, a slate grinding stone, pot sherds and a Middle Neolithic pot, all of which are currently in the Statens Historiska Museum in Stockholm.
The north dolmen measures 3 m by 2.2 m by 1.7 m high. The entry chamber faces 50 degrees NE.

The dolmen caps are of interest because of the hundreds of cup marks inscribed into them. These Bronze Age carvings may indicate a fertility function or a cult of the dead. In local folklore they are called river mills because of the belief that elves ground their grains in the small cups.
