|Description ||Soon built-over....the megalithic passage grave was located approximately at (left) photos' centre. The area is currently prepared for development and probably the site will be built-over sooner or later. |
Destroyed (the megaliths were robbed before 1930, presumably in the 19th century) megalithic tomb from funnel beaker culture. Excavations in the early 1930s and in 1994 revealed pottery, chambers' pavement, traces of the orthostats and of an oval enclosure. Length of chamber approximately 12m, clear size 8,5m by 2m. Seems to form a multi-age necropolis along with the three nearby sites.
