Walmsburg Steingrab

Chambered Tomb in Lower Saxony.

Close to a Long Barrow, remains of a burial chamber in the forest 'Schieringer Forst'.

The tomb is an unusual chamber: On the long sides it has only one lengthy upright, more than 2 metres length both.

Some more triangle shaped standing stones surround the chamber.

from the 'Barskamper Chronik'

Ein weiteres kleines, stark beschädigtes Hühnengrab im Jagen 34, von dem nur die Breite mit 5 m bekannt ist, wird für das älteste Steingrab Niedersachsens erachtet. Es ist ein Dolmen, eine einfache geschlossene Grabkammer (bretonisch = Steintisch)

So, this should be the oldest stone tomb in Lower Saxony...
