The Dolmen Fontanaccia, at Sartene,in Corsia, echoes a Sardinian design or vice versa. Yet, dolmens are one of the oldest megalithic structures which are found all over the world with the greatest concentration in Korea.
Constructed of heavy slabs of rock and a capped roof this monument is a fine example of dolmen construction on the island.
There are many other dolmens that were constructed in Corsica and some share similar design canons.
Dolmens are normally dated to the Neolithic period - around 5000 years ago. A spiritual or religious commonality existed that motivated a people, worldwide, to construct the enigmatic dolmen.

According to one legend, there were three local spinsters living nearby - ’spinsters’ meaning wool spinners. One morning the three ladies set out to take their spun wool to the wool trader. When they passed fallen cromlech the trio decided to spend some time re-erecting three granite slabs. The Spinsters capped them with a huge granite stone.
This legend hints at the powerful and magical threefold triple goddess
and the Moon as its light symbol.
However, another version states that a mysterious old man accompanied by his three sons suddenly appeared from the hills, erected the dolmen like structure and promptly disappeared. Perhaps they were turned into stone. But who was the old man? Legend says he was Noah, of biblical ark fame, and he is represented by the huge capstone with the three imposts being his beloved sons.
Spinster’s Rock is a Neolithic chambered found in atmospheric countryside of Dartmoor, England. Originally, it may have been covered by a long or oval mound of earth or stones. The estimated weight of the capstone is 16 tons and measures 3.65m long by 2.7m wide and 0.6m thick. Noah is heavy!
The tomb collapsed in 1862, and later in that year, the Reverend William Ponsford paid for its restoration. Today, it still stands as a silent witness to a long lost megalithic civilisation.

Pierre de la Fée (Draguignan)
Our anceint ancestors constructed Dolmen monuments all over the world, with the largest concentration in Korea.
France has many fine examples.
Date to around 4000-3000 BC (orthodox dating) this massive dolmen is situated in Draguignan city which is a physical link to our spiritual past.
The cap stone weighs 25 tons - imagine lifting that and we are told with wooden posts and strings! Really!
Legend says that a fairy lives under the monument and locals call it pèira de la fada or pierre de la fée, the fairy stone.
Living in a settlement close by, the people of this area cared deeply for the land upon which they lived.
Yet, this dolmen has suffered abuse. Modern day carvings, alongside at one time painted graffiti tried to dis-empower this wonderful site. Stonehenge has felt this and Avebury and Rollright too. Back in the 60s Radio Caroline was painted on the grand stones! I can remember about 20 or so years ago when one of Avebury's avenue stones was painted and Rollright splashed with paint.
Despite the modern intrusion, the timeless never fading energy of this site is upligting and has a strong Spirit of Place.

Sacred sites and Dancing Lights
Overlooking the ceremonial landscape for 5000 years stands Chûn Quoit which is one of the best preserved of all Neolithic quoits (also called dolmens or cromlechs) in western Cornwall
Chun means House on the Downs and it welcomes all and it will offer you unusual hospitality.
One night, archaeologist Dr J Barnett finished his fieldwork in the locality and he and a colleague decided to chill out within the quiot.
It was dark with no light source for miles when the large megalithic capstone began to communicate...He saw short bursts of multicoloured light that travelled in lines alone the capstone in linear bands. Mesmerised they watched for half an hour and left site with an open mind and a new understanding of ancient sites.
Sacred sites are alive and full of energy and to touch the emitted light, which I have, is an extraordinary union.
Living stone can communicate with us in seen and unseen ways. I love them all x Check out www.theaveburyexperience.co.uk

I was at Pentre Ifan at the weekend. It is huge. It was once a massive burial chamber. Looking through the entrance it draws your attention to the land. Inside the energy stills the mind as earth energy greets you.
Nearby is an outcrop of the healing bluestones transported from Wales to Stonehenge. Oh they are beautiful.
Imagine the stone highly polished. Looking elegant blue and bright as this is what some of stonehenge 's bluestones once looked like.
Three times more magnetic than any other stone shows the sensitivity of our ancestors to the energies of stone.
Gors Fawr stone circle called me. A great stone circle. It has an outlying megalith which is lke a stone throne as it has a seat. Sit on it and your third eye chakra rests upon a highly magnetic hotspot that gently opens it. It set a compass 20 degrees out. I sat there and did not want to leave even though it was windy...Isn't the ancient landscape magical! Check out its megalithic seat and it's partner at midsummer as they mark the sunrise according to Thom...also check out our tours with Brien Foerster James Swagger Michael Tellinger and myself at
