Dolmens are ancient (upwards of 5000 years old) grave sites made of giant boulders. I don't know about their history in the Netherlands (they appear to be similar to Stonehenge), but the Sloterpark in western Amsterdam has a modern, brushed aluminum dolmen art installation. They're pretty cool.

Ancient tombs from six thousand years ago. They usually consist of two upright stones and a horizonal stone laying on top. Stonehenge is the most famous collection of dolmens.

I live with archaeologists. This would be sort of a normal sentence, for them, if they were touring archaeological sites in the Netherlands.

The English translation makes no sense to me. I'm not sure about the Dutch.
