The place of execution, Bureheden

0910-45 25 10

Three people died at the execution spot in Bureheden. It is no signs that can be seen today after the executioner. But the discomfort still remains i the air. During the executions people often gathered to watch. It was to put out a message that if you do crime or something bad, this is where you end up!

The execution spot was outside the village, often in connection with a bigger road. Because the people thought that they would haunt and should be left alone so that is why its not inside the village so that the ghosts would find inner peace. Bureå hembygsförening have raised a memory stone at the executionspot with a arrow in shape of the executioners tool.
