A zoomed photo of the tomb taken from outside the barbed wire.


This tomb is set on in a private field. Unfortunately we didn't find a way to get in nor did we find anybody to ask for the permission. The very bad weather in that moment wasn't the strongest of the incentives to do more than we did.
For this reason I couldn't get closer to the stones and measure any dimension. The coordinates were taken from a point outside the barbed wire fence, a point that was 270° from the tomb and about 15 metres from it.
How sad for not getting closer... the tomb looks very well preserved.
What I know about it is that excavations retrieved the cremated bones of an adult, probably female, several flint flakes, scrapers, knives, an axe head and several fragments of pottery, mostly Late Neolithic, and a sliver dating to the Bronze age.
