Megalithic Monuments of Brittany

Nature volume 130, pages 442443 (17 September 1932) | Download Citation



IT was to be expected that megalithic monuments, and in particular circles, stone or other, would occupy much of the attention of the International Congress of Prehistoric and Protohistoric Sciences, recently held in London, especially as arrangements had been made to give many of the overseas members their first opportunity to view the site of the wooden circles at Woodhenge and ‘The Sanctuary’. In fact, two whole sessions of Section III.A of the Congress were devoted to the subject. Among the communications then presented, special interest is attached to that of the veteran field archaeologist, M. Z. Le Rouzic, whose prolonged and practical acquaintance with the problem of the megalith in Brittany gives him unquestioned authority on the subject chosen for his communication: “Morphologie et chronologie des monuments sepulchraux de Morbihan”.
