Hunebedden are the megalithic tombs of the Neolithic Funnel Beaker Culture in the Netherlands. Jan Albert Bakker is one of the few archaeologists in Holland to have excavated a Dutch megalithic tomb, and here he not only draws on and presents the knowledge acquired through excavations, but gives also an overview of the history of Dutch megalithic tomb investigations and an abundantly illustrated compendium of data on all the known megalithic tombs in Holland.
Jan Albert Bakker is a former lecturer in Prehistoric Archaeology of Northwestern Europe at the University of Amsterdam, and has been a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences since 1990.
