Hunebed "Giants hill" of Putgarten/Nobbin
Hunebed

Directly besides the coast of the Eastern Sea lies this trapezoidal hunebed. It has large stones on the larger end of the bed. On the western longside, a burial chamber without cupstones remained. According to the Information board, there has been another one along the same side, both were extended dolmens. At the south end there are two huge stones. Prof. Ewald Schuldt excavated the grave in 1970.

Those graves were used for a whole kin. Some walls have more than 100 m in length and contain two or more stone chambers. They were in use for long periods. The walls were bordered with "smaller" erratic blocks, that now are often missing.
