My (admittedly shallow) understanding was that there was some debate
about whether all tumuluses and dolmens were in fact tombs. This is an
instance where I think a flatter structure might be safer:

historic=tumulus
historic=dolmen
historic=stone_circle
historic=cromlich
historic=standing_stones

Having "pyramid" a subtag under "tomb" just feels wrong, also.

Definitely tomb rather than grave, in any case.
