The Kleinaspergle is a Hallstatt burial mound around 1000 meters south of the Hohenasperg between Asperg and Möglingen in Baden-Württemberg.
The burial mound
The burial mound has a diameter of 60 m and a height of 7.60 m and is surrounded by a 1.20 m deep and 2.50 m wide circular moat. So far, two wood-paneled burial chambers of the same structure have been found in the hill. The stolen central main burial chamber is 3 m by 4 m in size and 2.80 m deep in the natural ground. The undisturbed secondary burial chamber in the western section is 2 m by 3 m in size and at ground level. It is believed that the mound was backfilled in two steps, first a small mound 40 m in diameter for the main grave and then an extension of this mound for the secondary grave. The heaped up material contains traces of settlement rubble and must have been removed over a large area in the vicinity, as the excavation of the trench system is not sufficient for this. The usual stone setting is completely missing.
The grave is so far the youngest pompous grave discovered around the Hohenasperg. [

youngest early Celtic princely grave. The main chamber was robbed when it was discovered, and grave goods were found in a secondary chamber, the pictures of which can be seen in the open-air museum on the Hohe Asperg, even under corona conditions.
