|What an eye catching arrangement. Is that deliberate, or just falling over?|
|This will be one of the arc-boutée allée couvertes, quite a rarity, and quite deliberate. One day I'll try and write a little bit about them, along with all the other stuff I have to do.............
But was it just lazy builders ?|
|It looks like an effective arrangement, so maybe "clever" builders??|
|It uses less stones, and is no doubt much easier to build with the stones leaning onto each other rather than with a row of two uprights and a capstone, but the internal space is very much less, and much less useable. But certainly a nice variation of architectural style. |
For an even more strange style, see La Loge au Loup which has a more standard Vee dolmen built on top of an arc-boutée allée couverte. Or was the arc-boutée allée couverte built within the Vee dolmen ???
