Danish Megaliths

Tags: 

Place holder Swedish

Denmark has about 2500 extant megaliths preserved as listed monuments. An additional 4500 are known to have existed but are now lost. It is estimated that originally around 25000 megaliths were constructed over the course of only three or four centuries during the Neolithic period. In comparison to megaliths in other European countries the Danish examples are fairly small, but their distribution is characterized by large concentrations in certain areas.
