In June 2018 we made a short stop in Oss (The Netherlands) for a visit to the reconstructed prehistoric burial site, with in the center of it the Vorstengraf (Grave of the King), one of the biggest burial mounds in the Netherlands.

Quite interesting. It also is interesting to me how this technique was used across the pond at around the same time as the Native Americans were using it here in the SE US. Not to be confused with the Middling mounds or trash heaps of oystershells and other items that they would throw away.

Techniques for burials were and are indeed not that different around the world. In the Low Countries it's just not very common to find them back after al those centuries. Generally they are only discovered when big construction works are being done (in which case they are sadly enough rarely saved).
