Volbers Hünensteine - 1956 und 2021

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Thu, 03/31/2022 - 13:10

If you travel to the large and long graves of the road of megalithic culture between Osnabrück and Oldenburg, there is a very special Early Stone Age construction near Hüven in Emsland: the Volbers Hünensteine (also called Hüven-Nord with the Sprockhoff no. 842). In June 1956, Lisa and Rudi, Karin's parents, who lived in Lahn at the time, were photographed here. We have recreated the photos and the comparison also shows the changes in the dolmens over the past 65 years.

However, this period of time is small compared to the age of the megalithic complex, which was probably built by the Funnelbeaker culture 5000 years ago.

The Volbers Hunensteine can be found at the coordinates: N52° 47′ 22.2″, E007° 33′ 18.4″
