Since the folks of the ones resting at Tuulingumäe preferred cremating--like did the rest of the island before the Christianisation--the time it dates back to was fixed on the bone comb found there. The comb and mound is from the 4th century. Excavations show a wind-mill stood there a few hundred years ago and gave the place a name as well--the word tuuling refers to a wind-mill.
