And it is this feature that particularly relates the Sé Girdan tumuli to those known in Europe. An important difference may be seen in the fact that it was normal for a European tumulus to have a tomb built directly under its center. One tumulus known to me from England that has a feature recognized at Sé Girdan is a long barrow at Skendleby in Lincolnshire.

Each axe has a shaft hole close to the back part of the weapon, a single oblique point forming the rear, and an outward-flaring blade. 5 cm. The north-south trench was excavated for a length of 10 meters, measuring south from the tomb edge, down to the level of the top of the tomb. 5 meters south of the inner edge of the tomb we cleared an irregular section of rubble stones, three stones and 90 cm. 75 meters north of these stones was a single stone sticking out of the west balk.
