  Lindholm høje
Along the Limfjord, from Aalborg towards the east, there is a lot of evidence of chalk formations created during this period, in the form of several hills
This part of the Limfjord is very narrow because it was formed by ice cutting down through these hard layers of chalk.
In the Viking Age, it was possible to cross the Limfjord only at Lindholm Hoje or at Aggersborg (Aggersund) because of large areas of wet-land on the banks of the Limfjord.
