Bargloy coffin
Bargloy coffin

This is a coffin like stone grave. As in 1920 the coffin was opened, 9 arrow tips from flint stone, and a dagger, a needle and a ring made of bronze were found.
More than 60 cups cover the top of the capstone, 2m x 1.5 m in size.

Those graves are mostly in North Eastern Germany. They have been built during the late stone ages and have been in use in the bronze age, which caused damages mainly to the cup stones. As they were built on normal ground level, they were covered in a mould. The 'daintily' architecture made it easy for the tomb riders, and has left damages too.
