Dolmens in Denmark


Dolmens are some of Denmark’s oldest and most impressive ancient monuments. These more than 5000-year-old stone structures stand as intriguing testimony to the architectural skill of the Neolithic population. Based on new research results, a comprehensive account is given of the origins of dolmens, their original appearance and development and their function. The book is written by archaeologists Palle Eriksen, Ringkøbing-Skjern Museum, and Niels H. Andersen, Moesgaard Museum. Professor Chris Scarre, University of Durham, has contributed a chapter on the dolmens of Britain, France and Ireland.
