History's Mysteries: Carnac Stones

Carnac Stones

3,000 megalithic stones arranged in perfect lines over a distance of 12 kilometres on the coast of Brittany in the North-West of France make the awe-inspiring sight of the Carnac Stones.
Myths abound around these stones, the most well know myth being that each stone represents a Roman Legion turned to stone by the Wizard Merlin, another myth involves pagan soldiers in pursuit of Pope Cornelius turning the pagans into stone .
The stones are dated to around 4500BC, it is unknown who built them or why.
