Nordsteimke was discovered in 1968 by a farmer plowing his field and excavated in 1969 by the archaeologist Franz Niquet. The grave was reconstructed in 1975 built in the village at the school center, but relocated due to expansion work in 2008 to the outskirts, where it can be visited today. However, since no final excavation report has ever been submitted and, in addition, steel and concrete were used in the reconstruction, the reconstruction can not be considered as true to the original. However, dolmens in eastern Lower Saxony are a rather rare form of a megalithic tomb.

The tomb is located in the southern part of Nordsteimke, a district of Wolfsburg, in the Steinbeker Straße next to a cycle path.
