|Description ||Unusual positions of the two gallery graves at Henglarn seen from Donnersberg on the opposite site of the valley. Henglarn II (left marking) and Henglarn I (right).|
Seven neolithic gallery graves are known in Altenautal (Valley of stream Altenau). While 5 are located higher up on the surrounding plateau, the two sites at Henglarn are positioned in the valley itself.
Apart from the rich findings the tombs revealed, further artifacts were found nearby. The position of the settlement belonging to the gallery graves isn't identified yet. GŁnther et. al. assumed it may have been on the hill between the sites, but no traces were discovered so far.
