Many ancient cultures have left their mark in the history of our planet. One of the most mysterious phenomena are the dolmens. Scientists, examining the creation time of the dolmens, their possible purpose and even klassifitsirovat dolmens on the type of their structure, and are unable to accurately identify the culture or ethnic group that gave rise to this phenomenon. As is commonly believed, the first building of the dolmen culture appeared around 2700 BC and by 1400 BC the construction was stopped. Most of the dolmens had been looted in antiquity. However, even those findings that survived and reached the archeologists attest to a vibrant and distinctive culture.

There are two, the most common legend about the dolmens: the first gave rise to black sea Cossacks, when at the end of the XVIII century, moved to the Kuban and found the oldest living facilities here are of unknown people. These were huge structures built of large stone blocks, which could, in their opinion, to build only warriors. Some of these plants reached a height of 2 m or more, stretched in length by almost 5 m. The thickness of the plates from which they were constructed, reaching 40 cm and more. The weight of the slabs of these buildings ranged from 6795 kg to kg. 25190 By the Cossacks to the legend, in these constructions, which they gave the name “warriors of lodges”, there lived heroes. The second legend is of Adyghe, according to which in ancient times lived in the mountains the tribes of dwarfs and giants. Physically weak, the dwarves were unable to build themselves houses to shelter them from the weather. Looking at their homeless life, the giants decided to take pity on them and build houses. According to this legend, the giants were so strong that any one of them without much effort could break the stone slab in the mountains and, putting her on his shoulders to carry to the construction site. In their homes dwarfs (te) allegedly drove to a house riding on hares. Circassians have called for ispun (co home).

Dolmens – a phenomenon not only of the Krasnodar territory. They are located around the world – Europe, middle East, Western Caucasus, India, South China, Korea, Japan… All the dolmens of the world differ from each other by their design but combine their size and the presence of portal slabs, Sandstone or limestone. She usually has a stone tube.

The dolmen is quite a recent name these structures. The word “dolmen” in its etymology rooted in the archaic Celtic language and means “stone table”. Relying on the language of the ancient Celts into scientific circulation together with glory “megalith”, “menhir” and “cromlech”, was introduced by French archaeologist Boden. Dolmens is a cyclopean (common name of the mythical giants) or megalithic structures (from the Greek words mega- “large” and “lithos” – “stone”). Cyclopean because they have one combined entrance-exit, usually in the form of a circle or oval. There are four types of dolmens:

a) tile is common, the most common type of walls, floors and sometimes the floor of the dolmen are a separate plate;

b) composite dolmens – with one or more walls built of smaller slabs and stones;

b) trough facilities – that is entirely embossed in a lump of rock, but is covered in a separate plate;

g) the dolmens, monoliths, including the roof, are carved in the rock.

The purpose of dolmens is still a matter of controversy. Some believe that these were the dwellings of an unknown people, others say it places of mass graves, and others that the dolmens are the religious buildings of a religious or protective nature. One thing is for sure – most of the dolmens is your portal to the sun, which may indicate that their builders worship to this luminary.

Still the dolmens attract many tourists and people experiencing these buildings feelings of a religious nature.

Shapsug dolmen is one of the unique and rare representatives of the trough-shaped dolmens. Located on the crest of a small spur (mount Creganna) Colehour ridge, 4 km to the South from the station Shapsug, 20 m West of a dirt road going along the ridge. The dolmen is located on a small clearing in the forest. The megalith is a trough-like structure, carved from stone-monolith (Sandstone) with the portal and the hole in it (the tube is not preserved). A huge stone hollowed from inside and covered by a stone slab several tons. Currently, the dolmen has been completely preserved, except for isolated cracks. To see the dolmen, monument of the first half of the II Millennium, in this condition a rarity. Its covering plate covered with numerous pits, which are often mistaken for the sky map of constellations or separate. Today’s neo-pagans use it as an altar, decorating with flowers and “dedicated” trees with lots of colorful ribbons in the branches. According to legend, wishes come true here. They say that women who wanted to find a mate or to get a child, in the shortest possible time reaching the desired. Therefore, near this dolmen is always a lot of women with “female” problems or unable to conceive, are coming here from distant lands to ask for a woman’s health or ability to conceive a child.
