Harrislee 3

Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech

Fieldnotes

Directly on the road Ellunder Weg and near the Danish border lies the extended dolmen Harrislee 3. Originally the site was located about 150 m further southeast. The chamber was found and uncovered at the excavation of the Rovhøj, a round hill about 37 meters in diameter and about 1.8 meters high. The dolmen was erected after the excavation at its present location. The long sides of the chamber, which is about two meters in size, consist of two pairs of supporting stones. At the north end is a strong end stone, opposite a half-high entry stone. There is only one capstone left, it carries numerous small cups.

To reach the tomb, drive west on the Ellunder Weg from Flensburg-Harrislee towards Ellund. After approx. 1.4 km the road Mühlenweg forks right, left forks the road Wiesenweg. Park here and find the tomb south of the road about 15 meters east of the crossroads, access is from the Ellunder Weg.
