Stone coffin of Schankweiler
Stone coffin of Schankweiler

This tomb becomes special by its "Seelenlochstein" that is, a stone with a hole for the soul. Such are found seldom, but widespread across Germany.

Those graves are mostly in North Eastern Germany. They have been built during the late stone ages and have been in use in the bronze age, which caused damages mainly to the cup stones. As they were built on normal ground level, they were covered in a mould. The 'daintily' architecture made it easy for the tomb riders, and has left damages too.
