Chambered Tomb in Lower Saxony, Bremen

This 3,000 to 2,700 BCE allee couverte, originaly located about 500 meters away at "Auf dem Steinberg," was destroyed by farmers in about the 17th or 18th century when the stone were removed and buried in a ditch. The remains were excavated in 1977 and are thought to consist of about 20-24 uprights and about 8 capstones with a side-entry and a tumulus, the remainder of which were reconstructed at the current location. The site is about 17 Meters long. 16 Uprights, 1 cap stone and 2 broken stones remain at the current location. The site is sign posted in the village and there is an explanatory sign board.
