Grave mould Stockhof Gröna
Grave mould Stockhof Gröna

Upon this neolithic mound a stone disk is erected. It is not there originally.
The mound has taken some corrosions, as with the construction of a high voltage supply line some damage was done. Previously there had been a digging party in 1884 of the "Berliner Gesellschaft für Ethnologie, Anthropologie und Urgeschichte" with support of the "Altertumsverein zu Bernburg", of which little documentation remained.

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.
