Financed by: DFG priority program

A large concentration of megalithic tombs (spatialy seperated from other grave sites) can be found near Haldensleben (Saxony-Anhalt) situated at a border between a loess and a moraine landscape. What does it mean? What sort of impact does the border between the old and new settlement sites have? What sort of social implications can be drawn from the spatial structures?
