#HUNEBEDDEN : A hunebed or dolmen is a megalithic (ancient Greek: μέγας (megas) = large, λίθος (lithos) = stone) burial chamber from the neolithic (4000-3000 BC) consisting of at least three but often (much) more standing carriers, covered by one (or more) cover stone.
According to common theory, dolmens are remnants of prehistoric burial chambers. However, they are not to be regarded as graves in the ordinary sense, but rather as grub houses. It is not to be said with certainty that tomb signalling has been the original function of all these structures. There are dolmens suspected to serve only as sanctuary.
In the Netherlands they are mainly found in Drenthe, mostly on the Hondsrug. They were built between 3350 and 3050 BC, [1] in the westernmost spur of the territory of the funnel cup culture. In total there are 52 dolinebeds preserved in the Netherlands. In Germany and Denmark, for example, there are still hundreds to be found.
