Menec standing stones, 11 converging alignments of 1050 menhirs stretching for 1,165x100m, near the village of Carnac, Morbihan, Brittany, France. The alignments are roughly parallel with evenly spaced megaliths which are larger at the Western end and smaller at the Eastern end. The Carnac stones were erected in the Neolithic period by pre-Celtic breton peoples. Picture by Manuel Cohen
