Heerstedt Langenbarg Steinkiste
Heerstedt Langenbarg Steinkiste submitted by CharcoalBurner89 : April 30, 2021 (Vote or comment on this photo)
Barrow containing a stone cist from early bronze age. Located near Heerstedt in Lower Saxony.

Within an 15 x 6m x 2m barrow called Langenbarg (“langer Berg”, translation: “long mountain”) a stone cist was discovered in 1935 when a farmer partly destroyed the barrow. In 1938 the site was excavated by A. Lincke. His report later was published by Jacob-Friesen.
The slightly trapezoid stone-cist is built of flat stone-slabs. Clear size approximately 2m x 1m.
Inside the cist some last remains of a tree trunk coffin were found. This coffin contained the remains of one human and several grave goods from early bronze age (3300-3500 BP). Amongst this a bronze sword, a bronze dagger, a fibula ornamented with a row of 7 concentric circles and a rare wooden round-bowl richly decorated with small nails. The bowl was placed on a flat stone slab at the NW-edge of the cist. Unfortunately the findings including the most remarkable bowl were destroyed when parts of the museum in Bremerhaven burnt down 1946.
