CharcoalBurner89 visited on 29th Aug 2022 - their rating: Cond: 3 Amb: 1 Access: 5 The cups are clearly visible and can also be felt very well. Unfortunately, due to the stone itself, they don't come into 'magic' like on the other photos right now.

Martin_L visited on 14th Mar 2012 - their rating: Cond: 3 Amb: 3 Access: 5 The stone is not situ. The cup-marks mainly face to the east. Due to this and the tree growth situation there has been no time of day where sunlight would enhance the visibility of the carvings.

Cup and Ring marks / Rock Art in Lower Saxony, Bremen

Schalenstein (cup marked stone) near Drethem.

The stone was found by a farmer in 1968.
Somebody counted 44 marks scattered over one side of the stone.

The stone was brought to a place near the road from Drethem to Hitzacker.
A very inappropiate place.

And, in my oppinion, it should have been placed
with the marks showing upwards.
That would have been, most likely, closer to the original position.

Drethem Schalenstein submitted by Martin_L : Remarkable cup-marked erratic. With help of torchlight I counted at least 70 cupmarks. Frottage may reveal even more. Viewed from the East. Stone has been moved here. The place is not very favourable to see the cupmarks without additional lighting. March 2012 (5 comments - Vote or comment on this photo)

Drethem Schalenstein submitted by Martin_L : Remarkable cup-marked erratic. In this photograph the cup marks near the top of the stone are lit. They have not been visible in the other photograph. All in all I counted at least 70 cupmarks. Frottage may reveal even more. Viewed from the East. The stone has been moved here. The place is not very favourable to see the cupmarks without additional lighting. March 2012

Thanks for adding this great site. As it was discovered comparatively late I had no idea of its existence, when I visited the nearby megalithic tombs in the early 90s. Next time I will have a look at it....
