Summer Solstice Event in Brittany

18th - 22nd June 2009 - Stones, Snakes and Sun....

A unique chance to approach the mysterious megaliths of Carnac ! Talks, sunrise and sunset observations, visits on foot, by boat and by helicopter, workshops, exhibitions, films, story telling, music...5 incredible days of wonder and discovery.

The building of the megalithic monuments in Carnac started over 7000 years ago. Thousands of tons of stones were extracted, transported and erected in alignments, circles, cairns and tumulus.

If you want to know more, join us in Plouharnel and listen and talk to people who have been searching for answers for many years ... and who have found some !

This year we are thrilled to welcome back Robin Heath who will fill us in on his latest work on the astronomical heritage of the ancients (and remind us of the basics). He's coming with Paul Broadhurst of "The Sun and the Serpent" fame. So the Heavens and the Earth should be united and the snakes and dragons tamed.

Howard Crowhurst, who has been living in the Carnac area since 1986, will help us discover this amazing site and show how it's related to British monuments. Other speakers include Hugn Newman, Kate Masters, Regor Mougeot, Audrey Fella, Philippe Gaillard, Pierre Le Labousse, Priscilla Abraham and Bruno Mauguin. There will be three exhibitions of paintings and photographs, story telling, films, many visits including a boat trip to the entirely engraved dolmen on the island of Gavrinis and to crown the visits by helicopter!

For only 35€, you will have the unique opportunity to discover the most incredible megalithic site in the world by air and see how these different alignments (Erdeven, Carnac, Plouharnel) and tumulus (Saint Michel, Kercado, Crucuny) are related!

This event is organised by ACEM (Association pour la Connaissance et l'Etude des Mégalithes), a non-profit making organisation based in Plouharnel.
