Lübbensteine Nordgrab
Lübbensteine Nordgrab submitted by AlexHunger : The Lübbensteine are nearly typical Hünengräber, an archaic German term for Giant’s grave, or chambered tombs in plain English. There are two sites, north and south, about 40 meter apart. The architecture of the nearly complete Lübbenstein North is similar to a small Roche Aux Fees in Brittany, though the chambered tombs are aligned in a nearly perfect North-South direction with an entrance...
