Internationalt – Myternes og legendernes nat

I mange lande og på mange steder har megalitgravene ofte fået forskellige kaldenavne, der har relation til gamle historier og legender. Om aftenen den 21. september 2013 blev disse myter og legender atter vakt til live ved flere begivenheder forskellige steder i Europa på de steder hvor jættestuerne og stendysserne findes. Arrangementet var åbent for alle interesserede, der havde lyst til at dykke ned i bondestenalderens historie. Deltagelse i arrangementet var i øvrigt gratis.

The Hondsrug Geopark

Tags: 

The Hondsrug region is a unique Ice Age landscape in the Netherlands. The Hondsrug region was formed at the end of the penultimate Ice Age, about 150,000 years ago. Ridges, each about 70km long, are still visible in the landscape. They were scoured out by moving ice mass combined with large volumes of melt-water. The hunebed builders were very grateful for these higher areas in the landscape and made good use of them. They lived and worked there, built their burial monuments (the hunebeds) on them and laid out the first routes across them. The subsequent development of this region was based on these ancient routes that mark a history of 5500 years.
