This (not very good) photo is of a field in Carnac in Southern Brittany, France. It contains some of the hundreds of megaliths that exist in the area. They are scattered in many cases but also can be found in very organised groups. Although they are not like Stonehenge, there are some resemblances.
Many theories exist about the possible origins of these stones. They could be:-
A pre - historic grid reference for people whose advanced mathematical and astrological knowledge was then lost for thousands of years.
The remains of communities in which the ceremonies connected with birth, death, marriage, fertility, retribution and sacrifice were carried out publicly and relied on symbolism.
Connections with aliens or other-worldly beings.
Rocks thrust up through the ground as the earth's surface changed, oceans realigned and land masses separated.
I'm very pragmatic and although I haven't researched the area and don't have access to the research of others, I'm inclined to believe that these stones, however amazing, could have been forced through the earth's surface during times of climate change or movement.
For untold years they lay untouched in the fields of farmers.
What must the farming families and agricultural workers of other times have made of them?
Is it possible that people once knew the origins of the stones but that knowledge was lost?
How did the farmers of old and their families feel about the stones?
Were they believed to be mystical, benevolent, religious?
Write about a person who lived by the stones in another century. Show how they feel about them and what locals believe about them. Consider the theories that exist about these stones now, but try to imagine one of your own.
Do you live near an ancient monument or structure?
