Collaterals to Stonehenge include this "monument of vertical stones", remains of the old mill, near the (rail) station, in Plouharnel-Carnac.

Or, that's the best I could make of "Menhirs du vieux moulin, pres de la Gare".

Plouharnel and Carnac are communes (do two communes make a region?) in France:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plouharnel ... Plouharnel is a commune in France

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnac ... Carnac is a commune in France

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnac_stones ... is our pile of stones, perhaps, from one of these sites?

Q/ Do you have any postcards of any other Collaterals to Stonehenge?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Not collaterals, but FYI.
I have many collaterals on stamps, but not on Postcards.
Your Carnac appears on a French emission.

Here is an Isle of Man FDC including "collaterals" and a Faroe Island Maxi that seems in the spirit of this thread even if it is not megalithic.

Carnac is an amazing site, someday I will visit.

It was through postcards I became aware of the scale of this ancient place and then the distribution of ancient epic-scale stone sites across the globe.

Does this count?


"Can you send menhirs through the mail?"
"Yes, but send them registered, so that they don't get lost in sorting."
