Nymburk, Nymburk dist., Central Bohemian Region
Museum at a prehistoric barrow
A unique presentation of a grave chamber at the site of its discovery. The burial of a man in a stone chamber with an internal wooden construction was perhaps once covered by a barrow. Several potsherds date and results of radiocarbon dating make possible to date the monument to the Eneolithic Funnel Beaker culture (3800-3400 BC). Opened directly at the site in 2013, the museum allows visitors to see the uncovered barrow preserved in situ.
