Prehistoric Cemetry at Soderstorf
Prehistoric Cemetry at Soderstorf

Direkt am Eingang zur Nekropole liegt das megalithische Ganggrab. sorry for not translating this
Grown with heath is this necropolis (prehistoric cemetry). Here located are a passage grave, a bronze age mound, a stone circle, menhirs and plaster.
The bronze age mound is fortified with stone plaster, and the round mould is clearly distinguished in the yard. This is not the case for most mounds in the "wild".
Similar necropoli can be found in Badenstedt and Oldendorf.

Large burial mounds were in use from 1500 B.C. until 500 A.C. In the large mounds the dead were buried within trunk coffin. There is an exceptional cluster in Wilsede. Such habit changed in the younger bronze age when the dead were burnt and the ash was buried in small mounds. Often such mounds were set near stone age mounds, which may have not been eroded at that time, and those places were respected by the successing indo-european immigrants. In many mounds, burial objects were found such as dishes, weapons and attire. Real prehistoric mounds are dented at the top - tomb riders usually do not repair the outlines of the mounds.
