Barvice dolmen

The Barvice Dolmen is a prehistoric burial site located in the village of Barwice in northern Poland. It dates back to the early Bronze Age, approximately 4,000 years ago, and is one of the few surviving dolmens in Poland.

The dolmen consists of a large, flat stone slab that rests on top of four upright stones, creating a chamber-like structure. The structure measures approximately 2 meters in length and 1.5 meters in width. The dolmen is covered by a large mound of earth and stones, which is believed to have served as a protective barrier for the burial site.

The Barvice Dolmen is believed to have been used as a burial site for important members of the local community. Excavations of the dolmen have revealed several human remains, as well as pottery and other artifacts that suggest the people buried in the dolmen were part of a wealthy and influential social class.
