The complex dates back to the late Neolithic period (2800–2000 BC).[1] The gallery tomb, with the entrance facing south, is 5.8 meters long. Inside, ceramic vessels were found, including goblets and bowls, as well as an archery plate.[2] Dolmen is surrounded by a stone circle measuring 6.4 × 5.8 m[2] and consists of a small chamber measuring 1.2 × 1 m and only 0.3 m high, covered with a stone slab supported by four load-bearing boulders.[1] During the archaeological excavations carried out in 1883, only a few flint chips were found inside the dolmen.[1]
