From the Pyongyang one:-

Two thirds of the world’s dolmens are contained in the Korean peninsula. The Gochang, Hwaun, and Ganghwa dolmen sites can be found on the UNESCO World Heritage list. This probably begs the question, from me at least – what are dolmens exactly? They are stone monuments, generally consisting of two supporting stones and a cover stone (see picture). Some are confirmed to have been tombs. Many of the cover stones are turtle-shaped, and the turtle was a symbol of longevity, both in this life and the afterlife.
