Dolmens: Another Example of Megalithic Structures

A dolmen is a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of two or more vertical megaliths supporting a large flat horizontal capstone (“table”), although there are also more complex variants.

It remains unclear when, why, and by whom the earliest dolmens were made.

Archaeologists still do not know who erected these dolmens, which makes it difficult to know why they did it.

They are generally all regarded as tombs or burial chambers, despite the absence of clear evidence for this.
