Synopsis

In Brittany, France, the multitude of menhirs continues to confound archaeologists.

The most recent scientific research has identified dozens of new alignments of stelae, some of which lie under the sea. Why, in the Neolithic period, did men erect these gigantic funerary monuments to the glory of dignitaries as powerful as the Pharaohs?

From often tenuous clues, experts try to reveal the mysteries that still shroud these sites and this unique society that shone and disappeared suddenly.
