HUNEBED D27

It dates back to as far as 3000 B.C. and considered the country’s answer to Stonehenge, Hunebed D27 is the largest of several Dutch megalithic tombs. Little known outside of The Netherlands – and not that much better inside to be honest – I’d never heard of it until Teko mentioned it some months back. We paid a visit as we were in the neighborhood, more than likely to never return, and was our last stop in our tour of Drenthe. It was just as good as the pictures.

Not as impressive as the one in England, anything that old though is bound to be interesting – and it was free to visit. Risking the magical chance I’d be transported back in time, and unlike the megaliths in Stonehenge, I was able to touch the stones, if only to feel the mystery  behind a structure made to serve some purpose now lost to the ages. Perhaps luckily nothing happened – with all the manual labor involved back then I’m sure my back would have none of it.
