Raven Steingrab 1

Chambered Tomb in Lower Saxony.

The location of the Raven Steingrab 1 is marvelous. You can drive a small pathway from the village into this small wood. People seem to take good care for the place, so you have a wonderful view from all around the tomb.

The tomb was set up with four pairs of orthostats (Joche). Just one capstone is missing, so three are in situ. Parts of that missing capstone rest near the tomb. Size of the chamber is apprx. 5m x 1.5m.

Furthermore you can see 17 stones of the enclosure, just some of them in there original location. The old Long Barrow was about 18m x 7m.
