It is a small group of burial mounds consisting of 13 individual mounds. The burial mounds are aligned with a path that runs over the Hunsrück or the Rhine Heights and was expanded in Roman times. In some cremations, the burial mound was heaped directly over the charred pyre. The notable additions to these graves include an openwork belt hook and an iron belt ring.

|Justification of the coat of arms: The bishop is St. Lambertus , the patron saint of the Catholic parish church in Halsenbach, which was built between 1712 and 1713 and consecrated after him. The red shield with a silver bar goes back to the jury's seal of Halsenbach, which was in use until the end of the 18th century as the seat of the former Gallscheid court .|
