LA HOUGUE DES GÉONNAIS
This Neolithic passage grave was built around 6,000 years ago (4000-3250BC). It consists of a passage leading into an unusual chamber which was originally ‘D’ shaped but later extended to produce a large open rectangular chamber. The site was first excavated in 1929 and was reinvestigated between 1985 and 1990. The monument had been badly damaged by quarrymen who took many of the stones. Excavation revealed the position of these stones and they have now been replaced with granite blocks. Finds from the site include a large number of flint tools, decorated pottery fragments and broken querns.
