I am not the first to question the assertion that dolmens were without doubt built for burials (I cited at least one source last year.)
Maybe have a look at some Angevin type of dolmens. Several of these are unusually big. (Some dolmens in the Carnac area are considered outliers of this type of dolmen.)
It is a pity that several of these dolmens don't really seem to get the attention you would expect for the largest architectural constructions of a certain type of that time.
Are they problematic for a certain wide-spread interpretation of dolmens?
I would like to point also to the seemingly unscrupulous reuse of parts of broken large stones in the Carnac region for dolmens (already back then). Doesn't this seem strange if there was much religion and veneration involved?
