Holzhauser Kellersteine 1 (Passage Grave) — Fieldnotes

Holzhauser Kellersteine 1 is not an easy to find site, as there are no signposts. Drive the B213 from Wildeshausen westwards for about 3km, then turn south towards Holzhausen. After about 620m the road turns southeast and after 140m there is a small forest on the left side. Park where the small forest ends (300m after the road turns southeast), the tomb is located about 100m across the now appearing field, maybe you can recognize the green memorial sign in a tree (see images).

The tomb is now heavily overgrown, details are therefore difficult to spot and photograph. Visible is the long, east-west oriented approximately 10 x 2 large burial chamber. Still preserved are 13 supporting stones and 5 of the original 7 capstones, which have partially slipped into the chamber.
