Standing Stone with Cup Marks

Standing next to the cathedral in Roskilde, Denmark are two large stones. One is standing up while the other is lying on its back. The standing stone that is still standing has twenty cup marks on one side that date back to the Bronze Age. The large stones are the only large stones in the centre of the town and could possibly come from a megalithic tomb that was found nearby or another tomb that was in the area but destroyed before anyone could excavate it.

The link below talks about a megalithic tomb that was found in 1930 about 15-20 metres further down the road from the stones:
