Grave mound - Buchholz/Steinbeck
Grave mound - Buchholz/Steinbeck

This grave mound with urn burial is from the iron ages. Ist surrounding looks bedraggled. Astoningly, the signs have survived the heavy snow of last winter.

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.
