10 Gerichtsstein, Lusern, Trento, Italien
10 Deutsche Version in Bearbeitung
10 This is probably a Judgement Stone that was used by the German speaking community that settled on this highland around the 12th century. Little is known about the traditions and uses of this stone. The number of aligned holes that are found of the stones surface might correspond to the number of farms that originally were located in the area. The holes are similar to those found on the surface of Laghetti’s Judgement Stone. During the “thing” these holes might have played some role in the voting procedure. The name of the site where the stone is located hints to a species of tree that played a symbolic role in Germanic tribes, as it was the tree under which village meetings were held.
