The last megalithic ritual in Europe

Friday, 16 March 2018

There are many large isolated stones littering the Belorussian countryside. Many of these stones have been, or still are, venerated as cult, or sacred stones. Over 500 of these cult stones have been worked by people.

The map of the locations of the cult boulders with man-made holes on the territory of Belarus, taken from this page of the „Культовые валуны с рукотворными углублениями“.

Legend:

1 – flat stones with cup-shaped depressions;

2 – cylindrical stones with cup-shaped depressions;

3 – stones with holes (round holes, cup marks) with a depth of 0.5 to 7 cm and a diameter of 3 to 7.5 cm;

4 – stones with pits of irregular shape from 5 to 15 cm and dia. from 7.5 to 15 cm.

Some of theses stones were dated to Neolithic and Bronze age.

The above pictures were taken from this page of the „Культовые валуны с рукотворными углублениями“ (Cultic stones with man made depressions).

According to a Belorussian legend one of these holy stones, which contained „footsteps of god“ (was hollowed), was taken by a wealthy farmer who was building a house and was put in the house foundation. But the stone has become wet, „it starded crying“, the wall went moldy and began to cause the people in the house to get sickThe farmer then  had a dream, in which he was told to take the stone to its original locationThe next morning, the farmer took the stone from the foundation, loaded it on a cart and drove it to the place from which it was takenThe legend says that it was strange that although four horses barely managed to bring the stone from its original location to the house, it only took one horse to bring it back from the house to its original location.
