Sonnenstein - Beckstedt

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


Unfortunately, there is only a very good copy of the sun stone in Beckstedt since 1955, since the sun stone is now in the Bremen Focke Museum.

The stone is about 90 cm high and 40 cm deep and consists of red granite. On it are eleven concentric circles and a central cup-shaped notch whose meaning is still unknown. Similar circular motifs can be found on stones in Ireland, Scotland and Scandinavia. The original stone was found in the early 20th century when demolishing a farmhouse in the foundation.
