Yet another dolmen found and dug at Orereta (Basque Country)

A dolmen was found in the area of Txoritokieta (Orereta, a.k.a. Rentería, Gipuzkoa) and excavated by the Arazandi Society of Sciences. Other four megalithic burials are known in the same area. 

It is a simple dolmen (without entrance gallery), with the gate oriented to the SE and built with slabs reinforced by a circular perimeter of stones. The structure also includes a slab acting as floor and was covered by a tumulus of earth and stones.
