|Description ||Steinfeld Steingrab (Altmark)|
Long Barrow with Chambered Tomb in Saxony-Anhalt
Original size of the Long Barrow about 46,5 x 6,5 x 4,8m
(A bit smaller on the south end)
The barrow had about 60 kerbstones, 53 of them are still there.
All of these kerbstones have fallen and are out of place.
This mass of de-arranged stones give the tomb a weird look..
The cornerstones of the former south end are of unusual size;
2,3 x 1,6 x 0,8m and 2,5 x 1,8 x 0,6m
They are the guardians, the "Wächtersteine".
The big tomb in the north end of the barrow was set up
with 17 uprights and 6 capstones. But sadly, same as
the kerbstones, most of them have shifted and the capstones
have sunken down.
