Passage grave Everstorf South near Barendorf
Passage grave Everstorf South near Barendorf

A first reference to this large stone grave gave G. F. L. Lisch 1846. In 1927 it was studied by R. Beltz. A follow-up research was done in 1966 by the Mecklenburg archaeologist Prof. Dr. Ewald Schuldt. Despite the lack of blocks, the length of the bed was given at 15 m and the width was given at 10.5 meters. The border stones, which are remarkably small compared to the dolmen inside, were arranged in a trapezoid shape. The right two gaps were filled with dry stone from rolling stones. On the southward long side was the entrance passage. Although the deck stones were missing, it could be determined that it probably was originally put together by three yokes. The ending between the third and fourth wall stone passage at the end was marked by a large, wide stone threshold. The corridor is about 2.5 m long, 0.6 m wide and 0.8 m high. In the large chamber, the plank was partially paved with stone and roll divided by upstanding red sandstone plates in six districts. From the existing six yokes grave chamber, only two covering stones are present.
Later, burials in the grave chamber came from the much younger and from the late Neolithic Globular Amphora Culture single grave culture.
Today's look of the passage grave is the result of one of the country's monument conservationist W. Bastian on the 1936 led reconstruction. After the billboard.

Those graves were used for a whole kin. There are really huge stones, and may even have a hole in one of it's bounding stones. They were surrounded by smaller megaliths in circles or ovals. Unfortunately most of the smaller stones are missing.
