Menhirs and Dolmens of Brittany

After my arrival at le Chateau in Brittany, France…

I soon found these fantastic menhirs, nearby to the Chateau, in Carnac.

(Menhir – from the Brittonic languages – ‘maen’ or ‘men’ meaning stone and ‘hir’ or ‘hîr’ meaning long)

And then journeyed to Lagatyar, north of Carnac, for even ‘longer’ stones and a small dolmen.

These stones were erected earlier than 2500 BC.
