Saint-Michel tumulus

The Saint Michel Tumulus is a megalithic grave mound, located east of Carnac in Brittany, France. The tumulus was built during the fifth millennium BC.

The Saint-Michel tumulus consists of a mound of earth and stones 125 meters long, 50 meters wide and 10 meters high. Explored in 1862, researchers found there a central vault containing a fairly prestigious funerary furniture : axes, pearls, flint tools and sillimanite.
