|Description ||Some 2 km south of Over Jerstal, just 18m from the street to Åbenrå|
in a field, the remains of a small burial chamber,
of which three stones are visible.
Chambers size 1.70 m in length N-S, 0.90 m wide (At bottom), 0.60 m deep.
For northern end stands a stone in a little slanting position, 0.95 m wide,
0.40 m thick, 0.70 m high. To the east a stone 1.45 m wide, 0.60 m thick,
0.60 m high. West a stone 1.45 m wide, 0.40 m thick, 0.70 m high.
Chambers entrance has been against S.; here is a stone 1.30 m wide,
ca. 0.80 m high, covered with earth.
Chamber has been excavated and capstone and filler tiles are missing,
Round Barrow is dug away. Approximately 4 m S. of the coffin stands
a stone on one side, propably kerbstone, 0.90 m l.
There is nothing left from the round barrow.
Site was in an horrible condition when visited in 7-2010.
Obviously the farmer had thrown a number of headsized stones
on and into the tomb, and the place is overgrown with all kinds of wilderness.
On top of the barrow the half of a cars tyre. What a sad place.
