The Enigma of the Great Menhir

The Enigma of the Great Menhir

A Short film by Marie-Anne Sorba, Jean-Marc Cazenave

Produced by Fred Hilgemann Films

Production year : 2016


    7,000 years ago, the people who lived on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean erected thousands of large stones on which they carved symbols, whose meaning had always remained a mystery. But a team of researchers under the direction of the archeologist Serge Cassen (CNRS) managed to decipher this symbolic language. This discovery, achieved using new technology, brings us a new perspective on Europe in prehistoric times. Somewhere between history and mythology, a story emerges of the conquerors of the oceans.
