Klein Goernow Opfertisch

Chambered Tomb in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Opfertisch = sacrifice table Hünenkeller = giant's cellar

Big Chambered Tomb in E-W orientation, with short passage to the south. North long side is made of six uprights, on the south side remain four. The east-most has moved outwards. On the short sides they are in situ. From the five capstones only one is not complete. From west, the first and second are in place, carrying some cup marks. The third is broken and has fallen into the chamber, the fourth and fifth have sunken as well. From the passage we see two uprights. Chambers size is 7,5 x 2,10-1,80m, getting smaller to the east. Also, the capstones are smaller, 3,60 x 2,50 x 0,90m in the west, getting smaller to 2.20m width in the east.
