| What's a cromlech?|
| In english is a stone circle.In Spain and France is cromlech.|
Visit my blog, there are plenty of photos cromlechs of Spain and France .
| The term Cromlech comes from the Breton / Welsh / Cornish language, from the words crom and lech, meaning something like crooked and stone slab.|
In France, a cromlech is a stone circle, or a ring of stones. Or sometimes a sort of stone enclosure, which can often be horseshoe shaped. In Welsh, a cromlech usually means a dolmen (dol and men = table and stone).
I have no idea why the meaning is different in the two places, after all it comes from the same root. I am sure others can explain much better than me the intricacies of the language of which I know very little.
