The name “megalithic culture” that we often use, reflects our confusion rather than understanding: it literally is just “the culture of the big stones”. And given the fact that stone structures can be found in almost all parts of the world, and that their very presence and technique evokes deep respect for the builders and a lot of questions, allows scientists and researchers of megaliths to relax and not to reckon with the fact that we actually have.
