Table des Marchants (Chambered Cairn) by CianMcLiam The large stone Cian is standing next to was most likely to have once been a standing stone, perhaps one of the now vanished alignment that ran past the cairn of this passage tomb. It was carved on both faces and shaped into the 'buckler' motif which was carved in outline on the stones of several sites in Brittany. Some feature what looks like hair or fur coming off the rounded top of the motif and these are carved into the edge of the stone here as well.

There are some other faint carvings on the bottom of the stone but some are now below ground level. There's a few gadgets set up in front of the stone, the little sign at Cian's feet says something about scientific monitoring but not sure what they are recording, don't remember seeing them there last time.

What amazing shapes. It's superb. They'd look pretty cool in the flickering light of a moving flame too. If anyone but the dead were allowed in to see? Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
