Do youhave an explanation for the holes in the structure. In Azerbaijan the cists at the center of kurgans often have small twinholes facing the south. Dr Viktor Kvachidze, the archaeological curator at the Baku hostory museum informed me that this was to do with the spirit of the deceased being able to leave the grave each night and return again. I wonder if it could be that dolmens functioned in thesam
Any thoughts ?
