A megalithic tomb (in the Netherlands called ‚hunebed‘) is a ‚room‘ made of large boulders in which the dead were buried. The Dutch megalithic tombs were built between 3,400–3,200 BC by the people of the funnel beaker (TRB) culture. They remained in use after this period at least until 2,900 BC. Almost all remaining megalithic tombs are situated in Drenthe. We only have the stone rooms left now. Originally they were covered up until the covering stones with a hill of soil. In some cases a circle of stones was built around the tomb. The name ‚hunebed‘ dates back to the 17th century. The people back then associated the prehistoric constructions with ‚gruesome Barbarian and cruel Giants, Huynen, Ogres, …‘ which must have heaped the stones on top of each other and were probably buried underneath.
