LES MONTS GRANTEZ
This Neolithic passage grave was built around 6,000 years ago (c. 4000-3250 BC) and consists of a passage leading into an asymmetrical chamber with a single side chamber. A mound covered the structure prior to excavations in 1912. Seven skeletons (six adults and a child) were found in the chamber, all were in a crouched position, lying on their sides and accompanied by limpet shells, bones of cattle, deer, horse, pig and goat and small piles of brightly coloured pebbles. An eighth skeleton was buried in a seated position in the passage. Other finds include a variety of pottery vessels, including a miniature cup and perforated shallow saucer, stone implements and a spindle whorl.
