text: Hundreds and thousands of megalithic monuments such as those Netsoho erected are scattered over the Angami country, most of them lining the approaches to villages or the paths past abandoned village-sites. Unlike the dolmens and menhirs of Stonehenge they are not dumb mysterious remnants of a dim past, but are a living and vital part of Naga culture.
