|Description ||Pole aerial from the West. |
Skeleton of a massive passage-grave from funnel-beaker culture. Emsland/Drenthe-Type.
The chamber 18,5m x 3,5m (clear 16,5m x 2,3m) is orientated approximately SW-NE and located within an oval pit inside the remains of the barrow. All 9 capstones are preserved, but 5 are out of place. The lateral passage is situated in the middle of the South-eastern long-side. One out of two orthostats remained slightly out of place. The passage-capstone is missing.
The destruction of the tomb was started at the enclosure. Only two fine kerbstones of the (most probably) oval enclosure are preserved, but all others (must have been 25-30) are obviously removed and destroyed.
