Dating

The Wéris dolmen where  set-up between 3000 B.C. and 2800 B.C. They are belonging to the group "Seine-Oise-Marne culture". Probable the standing stones date the same period. 

Outlining

The megaliths in Wris are standing in a geometrical connection.
The rock "Pierre Haina" is a marking point for spring-equinox, seen from the northern dolmen, Wris I,
and for summer solstice, seen from the standing stones in Oppagne.
