D6, Tynaarlo

A mini hunebed but very well preserved with all boulders just in place: 3 capstones, 6 sidestones and 2 endstones. A cute little hunebed on its own quiet ground but close to the busy road to Zuidlaren and the railroad Assen - Groningen. Investigations by Prof. Van Giffen in the fifties proved the former existence of another 4 hunebeds in the neighborhood. He found an abundance of artifacts (potsherds, axes, beads, etc.), exhibited now in the Drents Museum in Assen.
