D22 Bronneger



Visited: May 3, 2011

Acknowledged as the smallest of the passage graves in The Netherlands, Hunebed D22 Bronneger lies barely 20 metres east of its twin, D21, overshadowed by an ancient oak tree that has seen better days. D22 originally consisted of just two large capstones supported on five supporting stones, but only the former can be seen.

When the hunebed was excavated in 1918 by Albert van Giffen, he discovered the three sidestones and two endstones still in place but almost entirely hidden below their covering of sand. The excavation also revealed 41 items of pottery.
