Hello everybody, hope everybody is okay ?

Well, looking at the photos presented as Dolmen du Chardy by johnston, it seems to me that they shows another megalith. It would be nice to make sure, because the original dolmen looks very different, with very remarquable signs on it.
Without willing to offer nobody, of course !
Thanks a lot, regards
