|WOULD YOU SAY THE TOP HAS FALLEN WITH AGE|
|Yes. Photos of other Ardeche dolmens show a much more level capstone.
Or ...... maybe it fell when it was built and they just left it and built another usable one nearby.
|Without knowing this exact dolmen, the stone generally found in that part of the world is quite weak and crumbly, and although there are literally thousands of dolmens to be found, many of them are not in a very good condition.|
