A prehistoric route and ancient cart-tracks in the gemeente of Anloo (province of Drenthe)

S.W. Jager


An investigation of a possibie linear pattern of burial mounds north of Eext in the gemeente of Anloo led to surprising results. Not only a prehistoric route could be reconstructed by means of a string of grave monuments; along this route a number of settlements were also located and old excavation results appeared to fit meaningfully in this arrangement of funerary monuments. Furthermore, during field-survey an ancient road was discovered, which could be traced over some distance along this row of grave mounds. Moreover, on three locations in this area sub-recent cart-tracks were uncovered.
