|Description ||Northeast of chamber IiV, standing out against the glacial soil and covered by the long-barrow mound, we discovered two dark traces, 19.4 metres and 18.2 metres long, which were at points 0.6 metres wide. They ran completely parallel, forming a slight curve.
The average distance between them measured 1.1 to 1.2 metres. West of the traces a single six-metre-long track, only 0.06 metres wide, ran parallel to the others.
Its profile was roundish-rectangular.
The same width was found in the middle section of the large eastern track. Here the soil changed to sandy ground and for that reason the tracks ran into single grooves, which were also roundish-rectangular in profile.
Furthermore, the profiles of the two main traces showed that the transitional soil to the glacial surface was hard and
compressed and in some places covered with grey, washed-out sand. Based on these indications, we concluded that the tracks in Flintbek had been caused by a wheeled vehicle.|
