Le Jardin aux moines
France

Ce monument apparaît comme un ensemble de blocs de pierres (blancs et volumineux à l’est, en poudingue de Montfort et plus petit à l’ouest) qui forment un trapèze d’environ 25 m de long sur 5 à 6 m de large.

Des fouilles archéologiques ont été entreprises par Jacques Briard en 1983. Des pointes de flèches en silex et quelques fragments de poterie ont été découverts.

Le foyer central semble remonter à 2 000 ans avant J-C mais le monument aurait au moins 1 000 ans de plus, ce qui atteste une réutilisation du site à diverses époques. Cependant, sa fonction reste imprécise.

Ce monument est original car seuls deux ou trois exemples comparables sont connus en Bretagne.

Légende : Le seigneur Gastern de Tréhorenteuc menait une mauvaise vie, entouré de soudards avinés. Ils passaient tout leur temps en ripaille. Lors d’une orgie un jour de Toussaint, la colère divine fut telle qu’ils furent tous transformés en blocs de pierres...

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
