Research on the route of the Megaliths
Salisbury Archaeology will start the archaeological research connecting to the construction of the N34 motorway in the Netherlands this autumn. The so-called „Hunebed Highway” crosses the Province of Drenthe in the North where we can find most of the prehistoric stone monuments, called “hunebedden”.
