Photographer's Note

This de D52 hunebed at Diever and has been built around 3400BC or perhaps much earlier.
Civilizations have been using the hunebed
as a burial place for women, men, children,(very probably only their bones),as a place of respect and
as a holy place.
The orientation is South West.The hunebed was very much disturbed around 1900AD and was reshaped into the present settingby the master expert mr. Van Giffen.
Originally the openings between the giant stones were closedwith little flints. The floor of the place was lower and covered with smalle pebbles.
Over the hunebed was a low hill, with a circle of sacred stones around.
