Where Stora Ängby manor stands today is the location of what was an Iron Age farm. This is the graveyard where those who died over the generations at the farm were buried. It has a total of 68 graves, 11 of those are mounds and 46 with stone settings of various shapes. In 1939, grave #8 was excavated. It revealed finds of pot shards, nails and charred bone. When Bällsta Road was built through the middle of the cemetery in 1675, it divided the grave yard and destroyed a number of the graves.
