– Hulbælter fra jernalderen

Palle Eriksen and Per Ole Rindel (eds.)

So-called pit-zone alignments – extraordinary kilometre-long belts of closely-spaced holes that extended across the Iron Age landscape – are almost exclusively known from Denmark. This book presents investigations and analyses of these structures and places them in a wider perspective, referring to related phenomena in other countries and examining their function and purpose. It provides a detailed insight into a completely new kind of ancient monument and previously unremarked aspects of life in prehistory.
