Westerwanna 14

Chambered Tomb

Fieldnotes

About 4 km northwest of Westerwanna lies within a radius of about 300 m, a group of five megalithic tombs, consisting of the tombs Westerwanna 01, Westerwanna 02, Westerwanna 03, Westerwanna 04 and Westerwanna 14.

Westerwanna 14 lies isolated about 200 m southwest of Westerwanna 01 under a group of trees. It seems to be the youngest discovery of this cluster of five tombs, as it didn't have a Sprockhoff number and it seems not mentioned in older literature. The only visible remains of the tomb is an impressive capstone.

Drive from Westerwanna on the K5 (Feuerstättenweg) to the west and first passes the burial mound Gravenberg. After approx. 2.8 km, turn left into Süderheide and then turn right into Heideweg. Drive along until you come to a T-crossing (passing Westerwanna 01, Westerwanna 02, Westerwanna 03 and Westerwanna 04 on your left) and turn left (southwest). Park at the end of the road, the tomb is located about 100 m on a mound on the left under a group of trees.
