Schadewohl Steingrab 2

Chambered Tomb in Saxony-Anhalt.

South of Schadewohl, west of Kerstenberg, near a hill called 'Spitzen Berg' are the remains of three megalithic tombs.

Tomb No. 2 is located just 100m west of the easily spotted hilltop. Same as tomb No. 3, you can only reach it if you can walk over the fields.

Schadewohl 2 (or Tomb 38 according to the official book 'Großsteingräber in der Altmark') was an Extended Dolmen with four pairs of uprights on the long sides, and a single stone on the short. Chamber size 5.7m x 1.5m. Two capstones are still there, but broken and shifted out of place. One of the capstones is littered with cup marks.

There are no remains of an enclosure.
