Opferstein von Melzingen

Natural Stone with Carving in Lower Saxony.

The sacrifice stone is located in an oval 30m x 20m depression. There is a deep artificial carve running arround the boulder.

The area was examined in 1957. They found a stone age axe and a bronze axe, so it is possible that the stone was used for most likely cultic purposes 2500 - 600 BCE.
