Vorpommern megaliths
In the area of present-day Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, up to 5,000 megalith tombs were erected as burial sites by people of the Neolithic Funnelbeaker (TRB) culture. More than 1,000 of them are preserved today and protected by law. Though varying in style and age, megalith structures are common in Western Europe, with those in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern belonging to the youngest and easternmost—further east, in the modern West Pomeranian Voivodeship of Poland, monuments erected by the TRB people did not include lithic structures, while they do in the south (Brandenburg), west (Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein) and north (Denmark).
Though megaliths are distributed throughout the state, their structure differs between regions. Most megaliths are dolmens, often located within a circular or trapezoid frame of singular standing stones. Locally, the dolmens are known as Hünengräber ("giants' tombs") or Großsteingräber ("large stone tombs"), their framework is known as Hünenbett ("giants' bed") if trapezoid or Bannkreis ("spellbind circle") if circular.
The materials used for their construction are glacial erratics and red sandstones. 144 tombs have been excavated since 1945. The megaliths were used not only by the bearers of the TRB culture, but also by their successors, and have entered local folklore.

LexiLine Journal: LexiLine Journal #102 - 2003 : Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Germany Megaliths Deciphered as Astronomy Cygnus Aquila Lyra Sagitta Vulpecula Delphinus
Welcome!.To our files athttp://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/LexiLine/files/in the folder for Germany I have addedmecklenburg.gifwhich is a decipherment of the megalithic sites of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (northeast Germany on the the Baltic Sea), showing themto mark the stars of Cygnus, Lyra, Aquila, Sagitta, Vulpecula andDelphinus [although of course the ancients would not necessarily have viewed those stars in the same organizational way as we do today].Those areas which Schuldt (see below) had marked ashaving high concentrations of megaliths mark the major stars ofCygnus (1st-8th) with the 9th concentrated area marking Lyra.One of the most sensible works on the megaliths, although I by nomeans agree with all that is written there, is by Cornelius Holtorf,whose Ph.D. dissertation is available online as a CD-ROM under thetitle Monuments of the Past: An hypermedia exploration of themegaliths.
