It was first at the end of the 19th century that paving of road became common practice. In earlier times, the road was created by walking. The hollow ways at Guslund is a good example of this.

At the path

Hollow ways, or sunken roads, are trenches in the ground, made from people and animals walking the same path over many years. Their feet have literally worn down the ground and formed a long furrow in the terrain. Maybe the prehistoric people at Guslund have walked back and forth to the big burial cairns at the top of the hill? Hollow ways are often easier to see in inclining terrain. At Guslund, there are several sunken roads.
