Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
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 yet time and considerable effort was expended in creating these impressive monuments.
It is impossible not to be impressed with the feats of engineering. These stones, come weighing 40 tonnes have traveled great distances on a system of ropes and logs. They are then used to form structures utilizing an interlocking system without the use of mortar or cement.
