Starrvitz Steingrab submitted by maddy : August 2008 When I visited the site it lwas in a pretty horrible state; very overgrown and without any information. Most people would assume its a pile of farm refuse! A bit of poking around did reveal the orthostats lining the mound and several other obviously misplaced stones. (Vote or comment on this photo)
