Men-ar-Rumpet Gallery Grave, Brittany, France

The Men-ar-Rumpet Gallery Grave (also known as Men-ar-Rumpet-Bretaña, or La Pierre des Druides) overlooks the mouth of the river Jaudy near the village of Kerbors. These structures are known locally as “allée couverte.” The site was used as a collective burial ground.  A gallery grave is a type of chambered tomb found in France, most of which date to the late Neolithic period. Dating of some gallery graves is difficult, as the tombs may have been constructed in the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, but reopened and used for burials until the Late Bronze Age.
