Abstract (in English)

Megalithic tombs in the Netherlands belong to the West Group of the TRB or Funnel Beaker culture (the general name for a number of culturally related, agricultural peoples which inhabited north and central Europe between 3500 and 2100 BC). In the north-eastern part of the country - mainly in the province of Drenthe - 54 out of some original 100, have survived. As the oldest built monuments, they are for many Dutch people a visual link with their (prehistoric) past. Which is sufficient reason for managing them as a national resource. With this in mind the Minister of Welfare, Public Health and Culture in 1983 established a working group under my chairmanship.
