Hunebedden (in English: Dolmen) are ancient tombs located in the north of the Netherlands and consists of three or more rocks (megaliths). The entire history behind these tombes are still a mystery. Some are even thought of being used as sanctuaries. Most of them are located in the province Drenthe. In total, 52 are still intact today in Drenthe (and 2 in Groningen). 2 of those 52 are located in the small town of Havelte. Dolmen can be found all over Europe and even the world!
