Krasnodar, Russia dolmen (a single-chamber, megalithic tomb that usually consists of three or more upright stones that support a large, flat, horizontal capstone. Most dolmens date back to the early Neolithic period 4,000-3,000 BC). This one is from the 4th century B.C. and contained a woman hugging a man. Both were about 60 years old at death and the woman’s hands were decorated with bracelets made of bronze beads, untypical of tribes known to have inhabited the area in ancient times.

Stone of the Pregnant Woman - The BaalBek Block - A huge block, considered the largest hewn stone in the world, still sits where it was cut almost 2,000 years ago. (Some say 12,000 years ago) Called the "Stone of the Pregnant Woman", it weighs an estimated 1,000 tons. Not even our biggest and best cranes in modern times could lift this stone block, so how on earth was it moved to its present position?
Göbekli Tepe: This (very recent) discovery DOUBLED the known history of humankind. The site is over 12,000 years old. That is 7,000 years older than Stonehenge & the Egyptian pyramids!! So far, they have uncovered and excavated only 5% of the ruins in the last 13 years because the complex is GIGANTIC.

A dolmen, also known as a portal tomb, portal grave, or quoit, is a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of three or more upright stones supporting a large flat horizontal capstone (table), although there are also more complex variants. Dolmens were usually covered with earth or smaller stones to form a barrow, though in many cases that covering has weathered away, leaving only the stone "skeleton" of the burial mound intact.
