Mehmke Steingrab 2
Chambered Tomb in Saxony-Anhalt.
Just 600m NE of the small village Mehmke, close to a small street, remains of a Chambered Tomb, a 'Grossdolmen' with enclosure.
Enclosure size apprx. 20m x 5m, only 13 stones survived.
Chamber with three pairs of uprights on the long sides, rectangle shape 4m x 1.4m.
Five of the eight orthostats remain and three capstones.
But almost all these stones have been moved or are out of place, so the tomb gives the impression of just a pile of big stones.
(There is no tomb no. 1 near Mehmke. Numbering is according to ''Großsteingräber in der Altmark')
