cromlech - Ro▀dorf
cromlech - Ro▀dorf

In the mean time visiting is prohibited: This cromlech originally had many more stones as those 7, that are still there. Some have gone to the Ro▀dorf museum, others have been blasted because they hinder the farmer at meadow work.
Here, much less stones have survived than in Boitin, it is about the status of the Red Maas.
As there was a bird breeding place here, access was denied. But now, the site had been restorated and is available for the public.

Some of these stones have special cultural history. Often, there are significant erratic stones, or cromlechs on exceptional places, that are shown here. Many are accompanied with saga and tales. As there are no written documents from the originating times, acquiring knowledge depends on local findings. Chemical analyses of the soil can shed light on cultural usage. Sometimes there are findings of prehistoric tools, i.e. flintstone knives.
