The Kleinaspergle is a Hallstatt temporal burial mound about 1000 meters south of the Hohenasperg between Asperg and Möglingen in Baden-Württemberg.The burial moundThe burial mound has a diameter of 60 m and a height of 7.60 m. It is surrounded by a 1.20 m deep and 2.50 m wide circular ditch. In the hill so far two wood-clad grave chambers were found in the structure. The old robbed central main grave chamber is 3 m by 4 m in size and 2.80 m deep embedded in the grown soil. The undisturbed Nebengrabkammer in the western section is 2 m to 3 m in size and at ground level. It is believed that the hill was buried in two steps, first a small 40m diameter hill for the main grave and then an extension of this hill for the minor grave. The accumulated material contains traces of settlement debris and must have been removed over a large area in the vicinity, because the excavation of the trench system is not sufficient for this. An otherwise usual Steinsetzung is missing completely.The tomb has so far been the most recently discovered pomp grave around the Hohenasperg. [more: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleinaspergle
