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”.

he Hunebeds were built more than 5,000 years ago partly for ceremonial reasons and partly for burials. There are 52 dolmens like this in the region and our research is focusing on this interesting historical period.
