Understanding the Carnac alignments 

• Among the first sites to be protected by the State. The scientific approach of Prosper Mérimée, the Inspector for Historic Monuments, led the State to pursue a policy of acquiring and preserving megaliths from 1830 onwards. During the 21st century the sites have undergone restoration and development work. 

• Neolithic temples. Recent studies have linked the history of these sites to changes occurring in the Neolithic period, when communities started to become sedentary. The lines of menhirs mark the way towards enclosures, spaces which were held to be sacred. The dolmens had a funerary function.
