|The megalithic tomb at Montpler is one of the most ancient constructions on
Menorca and consisted of a burial chamber, a passage way and a burial mound of
stones and soil. The corpses of the deceased were carried to the burial chamber
through the narrow passage way and perforated slab of stone. Once the corpses
were reduced to skeletons, the bones were laid on the bottom and sides of the burial
chamber to leave space for new in-humations. Men, women and children were
buried in these monuments which were in use between 2000 and 1450 BC.
