Ostereistedt Steingrab Chambered Tomb in Lower Saxony.

Comparably lengthy Chambered Tomb, chamber was build with 7 orthostats on each long side in NE-SW orientation. The NE single orthostat on the short side is in situ. There are 4 orthostats of the NW long side still in position, 5 on the opposite. (According to Sprockhoff's text) Nowadays it seems that you can see the tips if one more orthostat on each side. Remains of most likely a former capstone are resting in the chamber. More remains of former capstones are scattered around the tomb. There are also remains of an enclosure.
