Sacrificial stone Frankweiler
Sacrificial stone Frankweiler

This is the remarkable sacrificial stone in the backyard of the Orensfelsen. Typical is the cup with drainage. The menhir suggests high cultural importance. A bit way down to the Memorial is another sacrificial stone.

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.
