How to map

Choice of value

When naming the megaliths, there is no avoiding the use the regional terms that have been coined in the different historical records and the varied history of the archaeological research. A unified English terminology is not possible, because for specific types of megaliths either no English word exists, or the established localised terminology is in use.
