Artist's Description

The Monoliths in Carnac, France

The largest megalithic site in the world. Laid out over 6,000 years ago, the stone alignments at Carnac are one of the most important Prehistoric sites in Europe. The 3,000 standing stones are spread over 40 hectares and stretch for 4 kilometres in length according to an meticulously organised plan. Recent studies have suggested links between the alignments and changes during the Neolithic era when humans began to live a more sedentary existence. The stone lines lead to sacred “enclosures” while the dolmen were used for funeral and burial rites.
