This from the Hamburger Abendblatt.
More information and pictures available from Merker.

The cemetery is in Cörmigk and belongs to the Salzlandkreis jurisdiction of Saxony-Anhalt.  Salzlandkreis is where the 'German Stonehenge' is located.

The cemetery is oriented in rows more similar to those Beaker burials of Central Germany and England.  Two graves have preserved remains.
