La Roche Aux Fees
France

It is an ancient passage consists of a series of gates rather than a covered walkway. It consists of a master bedroom and an anteroom. The master bedroom itself is divided into four parts by three stones. According to sources, the structure is composed of 40 to 50 stones. The site consists of 41 main stones: 9 stones horizontal (table) with a much smaller than the others, 32 vertical stones (orthostatic) with an inclined and more important to the bedside. A stone is hand, surrounded by tree roots. The table of the entrance portico was apparently unstable until 1955. The stones weigh 40 tons heavier. The structure resembles a parallelepiped which is 19.5 m long and approximately 4.70 m wide and up to 4.10 m high. The antechamber is slightly less high than the master bedroom. The stones are flush Ordovician shale purple (not extracted). Theil Forest about 5 km is the nearest place where you can find this type of rock. Although no excavation is no proof, the structure was originally intended to be covered with a mound like most of the monuments of this type. Similarly, the fact of bones found in similar buildings, one can assume that the Roche-aux-Fees funeral had a role. Today the structure is surrounded by trees.

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.
