A 4,000-year-old “Stonehenge” found in the Netherlands

It was recently discovered that the Netherlands also has its own archaeological site, similar to the famous Stonehenge Monument in Great Britain. This monument, which is located in Papenderek, is the first of its kind in the Netherlands.

The monument consists of 120 stone blocks that have been arranged in a circular shape. Each block is about 2 meters high and weighs about 20 tons. This indicates that the creation of this monument was quite a labor-intensive process.

However, like many other archaeological sites, this monument remains a mystery to scientists. All that is known is that it was built around 2000 BC. Some scholars suggest that the monument was used for religious purposes, but there is no evidence to support this theory.

However, although the monument is the first of its kind in the Netherlands, it is not unique in the world. Besides Stonehenge, there are many other similar monuments that have been discovered in different parts of the world.

Some scholars believe that these monuments were created to measure time or for calendar purposes. However, as in the case of the Dutch monument, there is no evidence to support this theory.

Despite all the mysteries associated with this monument, it remains one of the most impressive archaeological sites in the Netherlands. Its uniqueness and mystique attracts thousands of tourists every year.
