Untamala Ancient Site

The emblem of the historical sites managed by MetsähallitusUntamala village was built on a headland jutting into the sea in the early days of the Common Era. Iron Age people settled on Myllymäki hill, surrounded by the sea. The sea area has now become fields, but traces of the Iron Age remain visible on the headland. Today, visitors to the pastures of Myllymäki can sense the presence of the past in stones with cup markings, cemeteries (0–600 AD) and farming structures.
