D54 Havelteberg

Chambered Tomb


Visited: July 12, 2014

Just 150 metres from D53, on the other side of the sandy road, lies another passage grave, Hunebed D54 Havelte. Slightly smaller than its twin, with a length of 12.7 metres, D54 consists of six capstones supported on a complete set of 14 sidestones. An original seventh capstone is missing from the eastern end of the hunebed, as is its supporting end stone. There is an incomplete entrance portal, but no evidence for there ever having been a circle of kerbstones. Unlike D53, D54 has never been scientifically excavated.
