Buelitz Steingrab
Buelitz Steingrab submitted by peterpf : The tomb of Bülitz. (Vote or comment on this photo)
Long Barrow with Chambered Tomb in Saxony-Anhalt

Long Barrows size was apprx. 26,5 x 10 x 8.8m.
Today only six of the kerbstones have survived.
Big stone chamber with five uprights on each long side,
the tomb has been set up with twelve orthostats.
Only one mighty capstone, still intact on the NE end of the chamber.
Most likely two more capstones are missing.
Chambers size 5,7 x 2,2 x 1,7m.
A big slab of sandstone leans against the chamber,
the engraved words are washed out.
In former times the slab warned the people not to steal
any of the tombs stones.
