Piltitz devils stone - Götz
Piltitz devils stone - Götz
The cross section of this stone appears rectangular with rounded edges. Standing upright, the stone has a centered tip. It is 1.1m wide, 1.07m high and 70cm thick. It consists of the locally common porphyr.
This stone is accompanied with similar talse to the Sennewitz menhir.
Some of these stones have special cultural history. Often, there are significant erratic stones, or cromlechs on exceptional places, that are shown here. Many are accompanied with saga and tales. As there are no written documents from the originating times, acquiring knowledge depends on local findings. Chemical analyses of the soil can shed light on cultural usage. Sometimes there are findings of prehistoric tools, i.e. flintstone knives.
