Title: Dolmen des Marchands, Locmariaquer
Creator: Ananda Kentish Coomaraswamy
Description: Photo of the table/dolmen des Marchand. A dolmen is a megalithic tomb, made up of a number of upright stones with a large horizontal capstone, or table, on top. This dolmen is part of the Locmariaquer megaliths, a group of three Neolithic constructions in the same vicinity as the larger Carnac stones complex. Today the dolmen no longer looks as it does in the image above – in 1991 it was restored by being excavated and rebuilt inside a cairn, as it would have been originally.
