  • There are no stones in the Netherlands. It's a swamp. That's why we make our house with bricks, which is cooked dirt. So when I heard there were menhirs and dolmens I was really confused. It turns out that those megaliths were deposited by glaciers during the ice age. Pretty cool. The province of Groningen has two such sites, labeled G1 and G2. The province of Drenthe has many more, labeled D1, D2, etc. There is one thing that puzzles me about G1 and G2: about ten twenty meters away from the main structures is a flat triangular standing stone, maybe one meter wide. What is it? A prehistoric sign post? A sun dial? And what are those perfectly carved little holes on the roof of the structure? Supports for torches? Those sites are not spectacular but the details gets you thinking.
