lies west of the village of Drouwen, across the provincial road N34. Not
so easy to find; you will need a detailed map. You 'll have to leave the
car at a distance of about 500 metres from the hunebed and walk the rest.
However, it is worth while the trouble. D26 is a nice medium-sized and
well preserved hunebed. Two rows of 6 sidestones expect 6 capstones, but
there are 5. It is not certain if one is missing. The 4 existing passage-stones
show that D26 had a long entrance. Regrettably the passage-capstone is
missing. However D26 possessed a nice ring of 27 kerbstones of which
13 are still there. The missing 14 have been marked by concrete imprints
on the ground by archaeologist Van Giffen. Between 1968 and 1970 D26 was
the subject of a thorough scientific investigation by the University of
Amsterdam. And not without success. On the chamberfloor the investigators
found the rests of 160 pieces of pottery. Further stone weapons, tools
and amber beads. Just outside the burial chamber they found a kind of
offering pit with two complete ceramic jars.
