WHAT TO EXPECT

Explore two of the richest prehistoric landscapes in Europe – from passage graves and chambered tombs to polished axes and standing stones. Join us as we examine a fundamental transformation in European life; and discover how prehistoric hunter gatherers settled into life as fishermen, craftsmen and farmers. The settlements of these Neolithic Europeans may have been lost to time, but their religious monuments — from Carnac to Stonehenge — remain an indelible part of the Breton and Wessex landscapes. Amidst the picturesque Breton villages, we explore intriguing sites. The ‘great stones’ at Carnac – enormous dolmen and cairns dating back to 5000 BCE – are an undoubted highlight.
