Some photos from my recent holiday in Brittany. The picture above was of some of the megaliths north of Carnac. I found these tremendously exciting (much to the amazement of my kids "but they're just big rocks". But there were so many of them and they are so mysterious.
The effort that must have gone into the construction.
We then visited Cairn de Petit Mont near Arzon. Here the exciting thing were the neolithic paintings inside. You could look at them really closely, but unfortunately we weren't allowed to photograph inside.
And finally we visited the Village de L'An Mil a reconstructed village of about 1000 AD, built on an archaelogical site. There was also a garden just stocked with plants of the period. It was simply buzzing with insects, and is where I took some of my wildlife photos in Fauna and Flora.
