The Rössberga dolmen is a passage grave (Swedish: Ganggrift) located in the parish of Valtorp, in the Swedish municipality of Falköping. It was archaeologically examined in 1962 by Carl Cullberg, revealing skeletal remains of at least 128 individuals, as well as amber beads and pottery shards. About 800 pottery shards were discovered in front of the passage. Constructed from flat broken stones, the passage grave belongs to the Funnel beaker culture and dates back to around 3600 BCE. This type of passage grave is a construction characteristic of Neolithic megalithic structures, consisting of a chamber and a structurally separated, lateral passage.
