Sinful Sunday: The hunebed

This Sinful Sunday I’m sharing a fun Scavenger Hunt picture that will be hard to match.ย  This is quite a special one because as far as I am aware, this is quite specific to northern Europe and these are in the Netherlands even quite specific to a certain region. In Dutch it is called a hunebed and the only thing close I could find to describing it in English is either dolmen or megalithic structure. I find that both are nothing like what I want to describe so I’ll just describe it and show it to you. The stones are a left over from the ice age. When the glacier melted, they got left behind and they where used to build these structures. Theories are that they where used as burial places but they also could have been used as shelter.

hunebed (500x333)

As you can see in the background, there is a path behind it, next to it and on the other side there also was a path and there where quite a bit of people up and about.


Of course actually getting on it required some ninja moves and a few scrapes after almost slipping.

hunfrontOf course when I got my dress down, I could see people behind me on the path that where making their way to us.

  1. Oh yes, this definitely is a Dutch thing, although I found dolmens (hunebeds) in other countries too. But those in the Netherlands are closer, so I will have to attempt to get this as a Scavenger Hunt location too!

    Love the last photo!

  2. I like this.

    In case you were wondering, the stones that make these structures come in two kinds. Menhirs are stones of similar size which stand upright. Dolmens lie horizontally, either on the ground or on top of two menhirs forming a “goalpost” structure รก la Stonehenge.

    Wow, loved learning about hunebeds and the last pic is quite amazing too!

  7. Beck says:

    You look great! I’ve never heard of a hunebed nor have I ever seen anything like this before. Very cool. Congrats on this notch.

  8. You definitely needed a partner in scavenging for that one. A 10 second timer wouldn’t be enough.

    What brilliant images!!

    I think I may have difficulty getting up on top of Stonehenge here in the UK as they are a bit taller than those! Maybe I shall have to go in search of some smaller ones!

    Wow! We have Stonehenge (and Castlerigg) stones. Great pictures! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Molly says:

    Brilliant… We do have them in Britain but they are not as common as they are in France where they are all over the countryside…


  12. Love this hunt location, and you look very naughty in it.

    Gorgeous image, I did something similar (with my clothes on) a while ago and slid straight off the rock so I’m most impressed!

  14. These are pretty darn incredible (I’m also hella impressed that you scrambled up there)!

    I’ve updated the Scavenger Hunt list – I’m included this under the ‘Rocks (large ones)’ category.

  15. Great setting! I find myself very curious to know more about hunebeds. And of course the two shots in which you’re featured are very enticing!

    Awesome Scavenger Hunt (and amazing lovely curves!) I hadn’t seen this one yet (damn you’re brave, both to climb them and to get so nakee!) Glad I followed Dee over tho…working on a round-up of bloggers who joined in the SH this month. ๐Ÿ™‚
