Großdolmen mit Schälchenstein
Großdolmen mit Schälchenstein

This megalithic grave was described by Prof. Dr. Ewald Schuldt as a dolmen consisting of two jochen. The Grave is completely destroyed.
On the partially incompltete capstone are 167 cup marks of about 4 cm depth. These marks were applied by picking or drilling. It is unprobable, that these marks were made when the grave was built. It is more reasonable to assume that the cup marks were created during the elder bronze age. As for a vertically placed surface, a usage as sacrifice cups is impossible. Some guys associate with native indian habits, ritual healing ceremonies and medical applications of the dust of the holy stone.

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.
