|Description ||There are many other large erratic boulders around, that do not appear on Schwieger's fine drawing from 1926. Some of them certainly have been placed there by the farmer who will have found them on one of the surrounding fields. Some others could have been part of the tomb (I marked five of them on the photo). Maybe the barrow had a ring of kerbstones around it (like at many other tombs in this area) or they are from a destroyed passage. But this all is speculation, only an excavation by professional archaeologist could clarify this. |
