|Description ||Standing at barrows' NE-end. |
Foreground left and right: guardian-stones.
Nearly 100 kerbstones (97 according to ) are preserved. Only approximately 20 are missing. These are either removed or fallen and covered by the disintegrated earthwork. Of the remaining kerbstones appr. 70 are still in situ, the others are fallen to barrows' outside.
Like at similar sites, the kerbstones at the short sides are the largest. In this case they are extremly large in the Northwest. The NW-side is built of 4 enormous kerbstones, all appr. 3m high.
The other short side in the SE is partly destroyed, but two large corner stones are still in place.
These larger kerbstones at the short sides of long barrows are often called “Wächter” (means: “guard” or “guardian”) in Germany.
