Grand dolmen 1 bei Bornsen
Grand dolmen 1 bei Bornsen

This chamber is in good shape. It measures 10.4m x 1.5 to 1.8 m in width. All the wall and capstones are in place. It is unknown, whether there was a wall around the chamber, there are some indications.
The largest capstone carries many cup marks, and the third capstone (from western side counted) has an artificial graving, and another cup mark.

Topic of this tour are cups - small artificial holes picked in the surface and are of prehistoric origin. Unfortunately, very little is known about these artifacts. In Bunsoh I cannot imagine, that the marks were made after completion of the grave mound. Probably, they had been there before the graves were constructed? Anyhow, they really look the same, no matter if there are few or many cups.
This is a compilation of megaliths elsewhere within my site.
