A favourite haunt of mine: the megaliths at Monteneuf. A mystical place.
Megaliths, standing stones, how did they get there, and why?
A megalith is a large stone that has been used to construct a structure or monument, either alone or together with other stones. These structures were built in the Neolithic period when life was tough. Just surviving was a challenge and yet, time and considerable effort was expended in creating these impressive monuments.
It is impossible not to be impressed with these feats of engineering. These enormous stones come weighing 40 tonnes and have travelled great distances on a system of ropes and logs. They were then used to form structures utilizing an interlocking system without the use of mortar or cement.
