Bronze and iron age moulds "in the Heese" near Andervenne
Bronze and iron age moulds

Five different sizes make up this grave hill cemetery "in the Haze". The diameters of the hills vary from 5 to 15 m. They reach heights of 40 cm to 1.70 m. To the apparent impression to the older graves may be the larger, the younger date about the Iron Age.
The different ages need not imply that these graves were used throughout.

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.
