By the way, the literal meaning of "hunebedden" is "giants' beds". In German, they're called "Hünengräber" (giants' tombs).

There are also many dolmens in Northeast Asia... and Korea has the largest concentration of dolmens in the world.

Must have attended all the wrong schools and universities....never have heard of dolmens in my life. Does something as obscure as this really belong in a language course?

Dolmens aren't "obscure" everywhere, as the comments above suggest.

I guessed it might be something neolithic from the word itself, and was happy to learn the new word.
