Sacrifice stone - Melzingen
Sacrifice stone - Melzingen

Ths soil from below this stone showed high content of phospor, which let archeologists think on bloody sacrifices. The chamfer also lets one think about such cruel rituals. The name, independently, is of newer origin.

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.
