Description

The tag historic=stone is a generic tag for all small stones for which we have not yet established a more specific tag, like the following established tags:

+site_type=bigstone
+site_type=megalith + megalith_type=menhir

It is therefore used for such stones which are for example too small to be tagged historic=memorial or by its origin and meaning use of neither historic=wayside_cross nor historic=wayside_shrine is justified.

Also we use this tag for stones that are found in some specific areas, such as Ritter stones in Rhineland-Palatinate (Germany), conciliation stones in Europe or Pictish stones in Scotland. The further classification of these stones is done in addition by the tag description=*.

These stones are protected in Germany.

How to map

Place a node node and tag it with historic=stone and name=*.
