|Description ||A reconstructed dolmen outside the Niedersächsischen Landesmuseum, central Hannover. It was originally disovered during sand extraction near Anderlingen, and moved here for public display. The building in the background is the southern end of the Niedersächsischen Landesmuseums. The dolmen was originally covered by an earth mound, 25 metres in diameter and 2 metres high. It is most famous for containing a stone (the "Anderlingen Bildstein") with three human figures carved into it - Anderlingen's coat of arms features a representation of this carved stone.|
