Giske is specially rich in burial mounds and graves from the stone age and on. Mjeltehaugen at Giskegjerdet is approximately 30 metres in diameter. Among others, a decorated stone chest was found here. The Eilif grave at Godøy is a 5 m tall burial mound from the younger Roman Age (375-400 years a.Chr.). It was unearthed in 1962.

A presentation of the grave can be seen in the coastal museum of Godøy. The Blimshaugen at Vigra is approximately 36 m in diameter and 5 m tall.
