|Description ||Alignment of over 20 menhirs, in the middle of the Swiss town of Lutry on lake Geneva. Dating from 1800 BC with one menhir originally with engravings (human representation), which has been replaced with a reproduction.|
|Good to see a picture of this Swiss site madcap. Thanks. Is it more accurately described as a cromlech or an alignement though, any ideas ? I would guess from this view, more like a section of a cromlech. |
|It's not a straight alignment, but a slightly curved one from roughly the east to the southwest. The stones decrease in size from the middle. I do not think it was part of a stone circle, as the largest stones are in a fairly straight line.|
|The French cromlechs are more often than not a sort of horseshoe shape, and not circles either, which is why I was thinking this may be a part of something similar. |
