Passage Grave in Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg
The 'Galliberg' near Schwabstedt is known to be a bronze age necropole.
But there was also a destroyed stone age tomb, it was excavated in 1966.
There was no capstone left, and most of the orthostats
were missing or out of position.
But the passage, consisting of three stones on each side, was complete and in situ.
The tomb could be reconstructed basing on the traces the uprights had left in the ground.
Somehow strange is the line of some 12 stones, that are set left and right of the passage.
These stones don't show up in the plan that was published in OFFA,
and there is no word about it in the description there.
