The Science of Prehistoric Stone Transport

Déplacement des mégalithes extraordinaires sur le littoral morbihanais, modèles d'embarcations et questions relatives à la navigation atlantique dès le V ème millénaire AVJC

Trans: Moving extraordinary megaliths on the Morbihan coastline (South Brittany), boat models and issues relating to Atlantic shipping from the 5th millennium BC







An interesting and detailed paper to download: The paper is in French, which you being a well educated sophisticate will not find a problem but I did, but the gist is clear enough.


Incidentally I am happy that the Bluestones could have been brought to Stonehenge overland on the "A40 route", but that might just be my prejudice against getting into boats.
