|Description ||Pole aerial view from the West showing the 27m long skeleton of this large neolithic tomb of Drenthe-Emsland-Type. |
Although damaged by destruction attempts, the site still is terrific due the enormous size of the chamber and some capstones. Several stones have drill-holes to prepare them for blasting, but fortunately the complete destruction of this monument was stopped. Clear size of this chamber is 25m x 3m (centre) -1,8m (at both ends). The chamber is orientated approximately East-West, the lateral 3m long passage way was situated at the middle of chamber's southern long-side.
