The Kujawy megaliths – the first stage of geological field research on monuments from 5500 years ago.
A b s t r a c t. In theKujawy region central Poland, near the villages of Wietrzychowice and Sarnowo, there are the largest megalithic tombs in Europe (the so-called Kujawskie Tombs), with a length of ~18 m to ~150 m. They date back to the Funnel Beaker Culture (3700–1900 BC). These are the largest earth and rock structures from the Neolithic period. Several thousand erratic boulders left behind by the sheet were used for their construction. Until now, they have not been the subject of geological and geophysical research. This paper presents the preliminary results of fieldwork carried out in the seasons of 2017, 2018 and 2019.
