Dolmen D17 is located in the vicinity of Rolde in the Dutch province of Drenthe.
The dolmen is located northeast of Rolde in the vicinity of the cemetery and the Sint-Jacobskerk. In the immediate vicinity is a second dolmen D18. Dolmen D18 has been ‘restored’ by Joan Lodewijk Gerhard Gregory and looks ‘better’, dolmen D17 is more of a ruin.
The dolmen was constructed between 3400 and 3200 BCE and is attributed to the funnel beaker culture.
The dolmen has eight capstones, but these are no longer all in place. There are also 15 supporting stones, two keystones and two gate side stones. The gate faces south.
The dolmen is 13.9 meters wide and 3.8 meters long.
