The Archaeological State Office Schleswig-Holstein and the Stone Age Park Dithmarschen have successfully sought to promote a new Megalithic Routes-Project for the further development of the European Route of Megalithic Culture in Schleswig-Holstein/Germany. The funding was provided by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media in the framework of the European heritage year 2018 SHARING HERITAGE. Further coordination takes place via the German National Committee for Monument Protection.
The general objective of the project is “to convey the Megalithic Culture as an indispensable part of our common European as well as our regional and local identity and history”. Among the numerous content blocks are media projects, information panels for the monument sites, public events, international youth exchange, deployment of new technical and scientific information, as well as an international conference about the history of the effectiveness of the megalithic buildings in Europe.
