Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_05 : Broken Menhir

Next to the cairn lies the largest menhir in the world. It lies broken in three pieces. When it was raised in neolithic times, it stood 20 meters tall and weighed some 350 tons. Think about that for a minute. Still in neolithic times, it was torn down and broken deliberately into three pieces. Think about that too. A gigantic effort was required to raise the stone and an equal effort required to destroy it. One act required enormous faith and commitment; the other act require enormous hatred and rage. Think about that. Has anything changed today?
