"De hunebedden van Drenthe zijn beroemd."
Translation:The dolmens of Drenthe are famous.
I seem to remember beroemd also meaning well known from a previous exercise? or am I dreaming duolingo now? ;-}
I think you're dreaming Duolingo. ;)
- famous = beroemd
- well known = bekend
Basically, a tomb with big stones around.
"A dolmen, also known as a cromlech, portal tomb, portal grave or quoit, is a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of two or more megaliths supporting a large flat horizontal capstone ("table"), although there are also more complex variants." (Wikipedia)
Drumlins are ice age features formed by moving glaciers. They formed egg-shaped hills. They are often seen in clusters, known as "Baskets of Eggs". This was my wrong answer. A "Hen's Nest" conjures up the same image. However, the Dutch "hunebedden" are Dolmens, not Drumlins.
Why a hen should want to lay its eggs in one, I am not sure. Its confusing !
