When Prof. Klopfleisch in 1880 digged this tomb, his improper actions let the probably rich relicts got lost. He also left no documentation, nothing. Just a very few of the relicts remained, upon which there are rests of cloth!
The grave probably originates in the Ballberg culture (3300-2700 b.C) and there were follow up funerals up into the bronze age.Fabian Gall: Steinzeitdorf Latdorf, 2003

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.
