The Grand Megalithic Arc of Erdeven !!

The town of Erdeven is located in my beautiful department of Morbihan,56 in my lovely region of Bretagne, and in my belle France. Located by the sea, Erdeven is a seaside resort with a coastline that is part of the Gâvres-Quiberon dune massif, running from the Fort de Penthièvre to the Petite mer de Gâvres, and is the longest dune massif in Brittany, cut only by the ria d ‘Etel. There are several posts on the town and this was a new visit with new pictures ,this time on the megalithic grand arc of Erdeven, Hope you enjoy the post as I,

The town of Erdeven has developed away from the coast and is in a central location within the municipal territory. The town is served by the departmental road 781, connecting Hennebont to Locmariaquer via the Lorois bridge; the village is also crossed by the D 105 which to the west serves Étel and to the east Ploëmel and Auray. 

The Grand Megalithic Arc or the Kerzerho-Varques complex on the road D781 just before arriving to Erdeven is home to several hundred menhirs over nearly 2 km with a layout quite similar to the alignments of Carnac: around ten rows of menhirs, the start of which at the western end could be formed by a megalithic enclosure or arc. The alignments of Kerzerho today consist of some 195 menhirs.

The site consists of 10 rows of 195 standing menhirs, intersected by the road linking Erdeven and Plouharnel. The most imposing of them are concentrated in the western zone of the alignments. The site was originally to consist of over 1,100 menhirs or stones, spread over an area over 2 km long and 64 meters wide. An ancient cromlech may have been erected, then destroyed during the development of the road D781, The menhirs date from the Neolithic era !
