Caption

Dolmens are megalithic tombs dating from early Neolithic times (2000-3000 B.C.). They are usually constructed by forming a corridor with huge boulders that are capped by other megaliths that are often flatter. This dolmen is one of a number erected in the north-eastern provinces of the Netherlands as early as 5000 years ago, earlier than the Egyptian pyramids and most dolmens elsewhere. They are named Hunebeds in Dutch and the megaliths used for their construction were erratic boulders, most often granitic, dropped in this area from glaciations of Holocene times.
