Passage grave near Züschen/Northern Hessia

Die Ritzungen an der Wand sind sehr bemerkenswert. Sie werden interpretiert als Ochsen, die auch etwas ziehen. Ähnliche Ritzungen finden sich auf den Langen Steinen. sorry for not translating this
Grave for a small western society. This grave was built from sand stone from the other side of the valley, and was transported with high effort. Each side has 12 stones, one on the North side is missing. Remarkable is the hole which makes the entry from the pre chamber. The signs engraved in the wall stones are interpreted as cattle and wagons and stem from the religious beliefs of the originators. One stone shows a Dolmen goddess.
The key for this location is available at the museum in town.

Those graves were used for a whole kin. Built without entry passage tunnel, there was an opening for later burials. There are really huge stones, and sometimes gather in neighborhood to other dolmen. Originally, those graves were covered with soil.
