Menhirs Libre

The official site of Carnac's 'Menhirs Libre' (Free the Stones) society. Menhirs Libre have campaigned tirelessly for the preservation, presentation and freedom of the Carnac alignments since the erection of the fences over 10 year ago.
Madame and Monsieur Mary live within the stones and thier own home is to this threatened by the plans.
Although the 'Menhirland' proposals have supposedly been dropped confusion still reigns over the fate of the menhirs.

Specialist Subject: Carnac and its environs
Favorite UK site: Castlerigg
Favourite European site: Tumulus de Kercado, Carnac

I've been visiting megalithic sites since about 1990 when I went to Castlerigg and inbetwen getting mashed and falling over I realised what a fantastic place it was. I've spent four summers working in Carnac and hope to return there in the summer of 2004 to finish the fieldwork for the epic 'Fields of Stone: an Exploration of Megalithic Carnac'.
Looking forward to The Megalithic European so this site can be expanded into Europe and I can climb the contributor post chart.
