The island became the property of the University of Tromsø in 1969 for 35 000 Norwegian kronor. According to archaeological records there are 60 burial mounds scattered into 6 separate fields:
a) 4 burial-cairns (R1 3155 08)
b) 3 burial-cairns (R2 3155 08)
c) Single grave-cairn at the highest point (R3 3155 08)
d) 21 cairns (R4 3155 08)
e) 7 cairns (R5 3155 08)
f) 24 cairns (R6 3155 08)
The island is property of the University of Tromsø and is freely accessed. One problem to reach it is the sea-level, which could be too high at certain periods.
