|Description ||Hoping to simplify the view of the photos, I made a simple sketch (not exactly scaled) where I numbered the stones clockwise (starting northwest) and used these numbers in the photos.|
Possible interpretation (not official):
Stones 1-5 and 9-13 are kerbstones of the barrow.
Stones 6- 8 are either moved kerbstones or remaining stones of the chamber.
Stones 7 and 13 are only fragments.
Surely in situ are 5, 10, 11, 12.
Close to their original position are probably 1 (fallen), 2 (fallen), 3, 4 and 9 (fallen).

| Remark: |
The tomb was scientifically inspected by Schroller, Holste and Schwieger on 9.9.1930 for Sprockhoff's Atlas der Megalithgräber. Current situation seems to vary a bit from that in those days:
1)Stones No. 2, 4 and 5 do not appear in their drawing. In all probability these stones were overgrown then.
2)By way of contrast I could not find the two fragments south of stones 6 and 7 that appear in Schwieger`s fine drawing from1930. Maybe these have become overgrown.
3)The large Stone 1 was reported to be in situ in 1930, but today it is fallen down.
Correction of my picture description (Sorry!)
„Stones 7 AND 13 ARE only fragments.“
„Close to THEIR original position [...].“
| Hi Martin,|
that's really a great performance, a real masterpiece.
During my first visit at the site (summer 1994) there seemed to be only blackberries, bushes and more bushes. So I lost every bit of a general view.
But this time (last Tuesday) with such a helpful tool it was almost luxurious.
Thanks a lot,
Bravissimo and three cheers!

| Never expected anybody to call this unpicturesque sketch a „masterpiece“… |
But at least mentioning its usefullness is pleasing to the ear. Thank you Andreas ;-)
