Schletz

In the older literature we can find an alleged connection of the orientation of the south-western entrance of this rather small KGA (diameter 45m) to a minor lunar standstill. However, after our horizon survey we can safely reject this interpretation.

This south-western entrance, with its elevated horizon would however fit the winter crossquarter day sunset (early November/early February). But the opposing entrance does not allow a similar interpretation and therefore a clear parallel with the KGA at Puch.

On the other hand, we can again see from te topography that the line connecting the two entrances leads straight down the hill, without resorting to a celestial orientation pattern.

This KGA has been physically reconstructed at the Kreisgraben Museum at Heldenberg.
