Abstract

In many cases, prehistoric monuments had long 'life-histories' after their initial construction. In the form of a monument 'biography', this paper traces the lives of megaliths in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, especially during later prehistory, protohistory, and early history (1200 BC-AD 1400) but with an outlook on the present day and perspectives for the future. Various types of evidence for attention given to ancient monuments by subsequent generations of people are presented and interpreted. The way we treat monuments today should be considered as a contribution to their future lives.
