The large stone grave Klein Dratow is a megalithic grave complex of the Neolithic funnel cup culture near Klein Dratow , a district of Schloen-Dratow in the Mecklenburg Lake District ( Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania ). It bears the Sprockhoff number 430.


The grave is located about 500 m east of Dratow and about 200 m north of the street of the same name in a small group of trees in a field. There seems to be a second grave right on the northern outskirts. The megalithic graves are located 2.5 km southeast of Freidorf .


The complex consists of a small, north-south oriented burial chamber with a rolling stone mound. The chamber can be described as an extended dolmen and originally consisted of six wall stones and probably two cap stones. The northern end stone, the two wall stones on the eastern long side and the northern wall stone on the western long side have been preserved. All are still in situ . A fifth stone is leaned against the west side. Its original location can no longer be determined. The chamber was 2.6 m long and 1.4 m wide.
