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.
