An amazing anthropomorphic figure of a woman castl2.jpg (19345 bytes)sitting in Castel churchyard. It's very difficult not to think of this and the La Gran`mere du Chimquiere nearby as neolithic 'goddess' figures. Made of granite, the 1.65m slab was recovered from beneath the floor of the chancel in the church. Carved crown, necklace and breasts can be made out, perhaps one breast was chipped off to deface the monument in Christian times when it was buried. Unfortunatley this photo is not very clear as the figure is in shadow, more pictures coming soon...
