Dolmen of Auvernier

The dolmen of Auvernier is a passage grave that was discovered in 1976 on the border between Auvernier and Colombier near Neuchâtel NE in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland and was then moved several times.

It is possible that the approximately 5 m long structure of Auvernier belongs to the Aillevans type of dolmen. The burial chamber may have been surrounded by a round mound of earth or a trapezoidal dry stone wall. Around 20 skeletons were found in the complex made of rectangular slate. The gallery is now in the Laténium in Hauterive.
