One of the mounds is presumably a burial mound, perhaps of King Gorm of Denmark. This mound contained a wooden chamber, but no remains of a burial. The other mound had no chamber. The site is shrouded in mystery, as it has always been connected to King Gorm and Queen Thyra, the parents of King Harold I of Denmark (Harold Bluetooth, Danish: Harald Blåtand), who also erected a large runic stone and a Christian church on the spot. At a central place under the church floor a grave containing the remains of a man has been excavated. This is interpreted as the remains of the (re)burial of Gorm. The remains of Thyra have never been found.
