Old and new, Hunebed D46, Emmen, Netherlands - 1252


Dolmen (Dutch: Hunebed) D46 have been fully absorbed by the city development of the suburb Angelslo in the town of Emmen. As you can see the hunebed D46 is situated on a public garden surrounded by the dwelling-houses of Angelslo.
The dolmen is 7000 years old and was located in the middle of the meadows of Drenthe until the municipality of Emmen started to build a residential area there in 1960.
This hunebed used to be a ruin. In 1960 the grave has been restored: now all 4 capstones rest nicely on the 10 sidestones. Nowadays this hunebed is rather a recreational instrument on a public playground than an archaeologic monument.

This is what we saw during our Cycling holiday in Drenthe, the Netherlands, where we have cycled through the beautiful landscape.
