|Description ||Dysse (Burial Chamber) in 'Nørreskov' forest on the island 'Als'.|
Round Barrow. Earth mound is well preserved, 0.5 x 9.5 m, flat arched.
In the middle of the mound almost completely land covered chamber
so that only the top of the stones in the north, west and east rise
a few centimeters up.
A round and rather thick capstone, 0.75 x 1.5 x 1.7 m, on top of the chamber.
The chamber was restored by Raben, J. and Raklev, J.S. in 1946.
They have put back the fallen capstone.
The capstone was slighly damaged, so it doesn't cover the complete chamber now.
