Cist in Lower Saxony, Bremen

The Steinkiste (cist) at Bremervörde is probably early bronze aged.
It had been excavated in 1966 nearby the village Farven, some miles south east of its recent localisation.
In 1973 the tomb was restored and transferred to a meadow close to the Bachmann-Museum at Bremervörde.

Both capstones and most of the relative small supporting stones have been preserved.
The chamber originally included either a hollowed out treelog or another wooden construction, with an individual funeral within.

Originally the whole ensemble had been covered with a barrow.
