Seven thousand years ago, peoples along Europe’s Atlantic shores erected thousands of big standing stones, on which they carved mysterious signs. Among them was the Great Menhir, a 330-ton giant that once stood on the shore of the Gulf of Morbihan in French Brittany. An international team of scientists led by the French archaeologist Serge Cassen succeeded in deciphering the symbolic language of those stones. Between history and myth, those ancient signs tell us a story common to all Atlantic cultures during late prehistory: the story of the first sailors!
