Wéris Dolmen, Belgium

This dolmen is part of a group of megalithic monuments found near the village of Wéris, in the province of Luxembourg, Belgium. The megalithic remains at Wéris are scattered over a region more than 5 miles (8 km) long, and form a group which is unique in Belgium. There are many standing stones (menhirs), including one beside the road just southwest of Wéris. Of the many chamber tombs (dolmens) which once existed in the area, two now survive in good condition. These remains generally date to around 3000 BC, a time period which corresponds to that of the Seine-Oise-Marne culture.
