Older than Egypt's pyramids

The dolmen configurations, there is one with a capstone weighing more than 20,000 kilo's, are believed to be burial tombs used by farmers - 5500 years ago. This means that these amazingly old structures are older than the pyramids in Egypt.
Up to now it is still not 100% clear how the massive stones were transported and lifted in place.

Apart from the Dolmen Information Center in Borger, you can also see the largest hunebed here.
