The pyramid's secret chambers and other ancient mysteries that might never be solved

Love Exploring Logo By Joanna Czechowska of Love Exploring | Slide 2 of 32: Are these megaliths the petrified remains of a Roman legion turned to stone by the wizard Merlin? So local legend would have us believe, but the truth could be just as fascinating. Near the village of Carnac in Brittany, northern France, a vast area of 100 acres (40ha) holds around 3,000 standing stones marching into the distance as far as the eye can see. Some stones are placed in regimented lines, others in circles and some on top of another to form tombs.
