Nettgau Steingrab
Nettgau Steingrab submitted by peterpf : the remarkable huge capstone (Vote or comment on this photo)
Chambered Tomb in Saxony-Anhalt

Text by 'holger_rix' 10-2009:

Near the small village Gladdenbeck, in the middle of a field:
The 'Großsteingrab' or 'Großdolmen' of Nettgau.
On top of a tumulus, a 5.3m x 1.5m chamber with 11 orthostats and 2 remaining capstones.
One capstone still in situ, the other has fallen into the chamber.
Some more remains, most likely from the bursted missing capstones, are scattered arround.
