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.
