Long Barrow in Lower Saxony, Bremen

Remains of a 20m Long Barrow.
Only one of the kerbstones still in place.
The barrow contains a chambered tomb of same orientation.
The tomb was slightly restored in the 1939.
The third, southern orthostat was moved to
the current location. A possible former capstone
is resting outside the chamber, splitted into two halfes.

The marker on Sprockhoff's map is some 80m too far
north, the barrow is located exactly where the two pathways join.
