The mysterious Standing Stones around Carnac make a strong impression on most people. Why would anyone line up so many huge stones over such a long distance? What was their purpose? How did they do it? We don't have all the answers in this episode of the podcast, but we can help you plan a great trip to the standing stones of Brittany!

What we can say for a fact is that large alignment of stones such as the one we see in Carnac are evidence of purposefulness. The people who created this structure were capable of planning a complex project. In a world that was still largely natural, this set them apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. Perhaps that was the whole point? Affirming their human nature as thinking, planning people?
