Sea of stones

In the Lautertal, a valley in the southern part of the state of Hesse in Germany, is the “Felsenmeer” or sea of stones.  The geological processes which created this natural phenomenon happened almost 400 million years ago, over time erosion laid bare these boulders.  Romans quarried them, and there are about 150 work pieces left from these times which were left behind.
