Chamber I - Kirchborchen
Chamber I - Kirchborchen

Neolithic farmers built this stone grave.
The chamber was originally covered with capstones and an earth mound. The entry was on the south-east long side of the chamber. That entry was shaped as soul hole by pickled wall stones.
These "herzynic" graves were inspired from south-western Europe, especially the french Seine area where there exist many graves of this kind.

Those graves were used for a whole kin. Built without entry passage tunnel, there was an opening for later burials. There are really huge stones, and sometimes gather in neighborhood to other dolmen. Originally, those graves were covered with soil.
