Mechelsdorf Grossdolmen

Chambered Tomb in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Long Chambered Tomb in NW-SE orientation, in the middle of a 14m diameter Round Barrow.

Chamber has four uprights on each long side. One upright, second of the SE corner, was missing but has been restored. One capstone of four is missing, but the three others are there, but have sunken into the chamber. Passage was set at the SE short end, we see only two of those uprights. There are cup marks on two of the capstones, one was carved with two wheels.

Some idiot had painted the shapes of these carvings with a black marker.
