Megalithic temple D52
Hunebed at Diever
This hunebed has been built around 3400BC
and perhaps much earlier.
The landscape has changed through more then 5000 years.
Civilizations have been using the hunebed
as a burial place for women, men, children,
(very probably only their bones),
as a place of respect,
as a holy place.
In recent times all respect has vanished and
the place has been robbed of its simple treasures.
For tourists the ancient temple is a romantic place behind the village.
The orientation is South West,
the entrance is directed upon the South East.
This hunebed D52 is situated near the charming village of Diever.
Diever has the charm and peacefulness of the ideal summer holiday place.
The walk towards the hunebed goes along a quiet country road.
One stone is indicating the entrance of the temple.
The hunebed was very much disturbed around 1900AD and
was reshaped into the present setting
by the master expert mr. Van Giffen.
Since then we know more about the hunebed in general
and there is doubt whether the reshaping was done correctly.
Being there at the site and feeling the energies Susan and Robert
have the opinion that the megalithic monument is in
a rather believable state.
It is a real pity that an entrance stone missing.
The obvious place is visible as a piece of mud.
The chamber of the temple:
Originally the openings between the giant stones were closed
with little flints. The floor of the place was lower and
covered with smalle pebbles.
Over the hunebed was a low hill, with a circle of sacred stones around.
Some small stones are indicating this holy circle:
The holy circle stones are still in place.
Here started the original mount or hill that covered
and protected the ancient place.
The official sign and number:
The stones are well arranged and in line.
It is not sure that the stones are in the correct sequence.
Enthousiast archeologists have been "repairing".
The impression of a very powerfull megalithic temple
is strong. The surrounding area
is respectfully set up.
Even the holy circle stones are in place.
Susan is feeling the energies:
Susan is measuring the energies around the megalithic monument.
Specially the Queen points arount the monument are
very important to find.
There are still 51 megalithic monuments in the Netherlands.
The energy is very earth bound, very low toned.
Here at the hunebed in Diever the feeling is a low whispering
of dark colored earth bound sounds.
