Skegrie dolmen

The Skegrie Dolmen is a Neolithic dolmen situated within a stone bed. Located in Skegrie near Trelleborg in Scania, Sweden, close to the E6 highway, this structure belongs to the Funnel beaker culture and was built between 3500 and 2800 BCE. Neolithic monuments are indicative of the culture and ideology of Neolithic societies, with their creation and function serving as markers of social development.

The rectangular dolmen consists of two supporting stones on the longer sides and two smaller ones on the shorter sides, with a large convex block serving as the capstone. The low height of the chamber in the Skegrie Dolmen suggests an early origin. The stone bed still comprises 17 widely spaced perimeter stones.
