Megaliths of Brittany

This work provides a key to solving the mystery of Megaliths – constructions the unexplainable paradox of which for centuries drew people’s attention. For the first time the article explains in details that all peculiarities of the structure and location of Megaliths are determined by the fact that they were built on dewatering – plain territories periodically flooded by water. This is the reason of a noted closeness of the megaliths to the sea and gigantic sizes of blocks that had been used for their construction, as those blocks were called to resist the waves.

The article also mentions what happened to the relief and why the megaliths turned out to be located to the heights where they stand nowadays.

Famous dolmens – stone houses -- appeared to be not burial constructions but frameworks of cave dwellings, which used to be covered by a thick layer of vegetable debris for warming. Vegetable debris used to be thrown ashore by the sea, thus the covering was easily restored after each flooding. Menhirs – separate high stones – are not the elements of astronomical complexes, but landmarks (orientation cues) allowing people to find the right places on the plane during the floods. Tumuli (cairns) are not funerary constructions of nobility but artificial islands compiled of stones, where people used to wait during the floods. Barrows (cairns) and alignments were the first hydraulic engineering structures for gathering of some carried by the sea resource that people needed.

Besides, the development of events in the late Neolithic presented in the article allows to have a fresh look at solving of such well known construction as Stonehenge and similar constructions.
