Grand dolmen Stöckheim
Grand dolmen Stöckheim

This is a very good preserved megalithic tomb. The chamber is oriented from North to South, and consists of seven pairs of wall stones. Its inner dimension is 9.2 x 2.2 to 1.8 m on ground, trapezoid shaped, and about 1 m high. Height is maximum in the North. The wall stones are smaller in the southern part and the capstones also get smaller. The very impressive northern capstone (22 tonnes, 4.5 m long, 2.9 m wide and 0.8 m thick!) is marked with over 80 drilled cups all over. The largest cup mark is about 7 cm diameter and is 2 cm deep. At the south-western corner, the stone has a groove that passes halfway around it. This groove is 1.53m long, has triangular profile and is 1 cm deep, 3cm wide.
Most of the enclosing circle is missing.
