STONE WORK RESOURCES
CARNAC, STONES FOR THE LIVING
BY ROSLYN STRONG
TRANSLATION (ABSTRACT) AND COMMENTARY
Pierre Mereaux, CARNAC: Des pierres pour les vivants, Kerwangwenn - 29540 Spezet, Bretagne: Nature & Bretagne (1992 Edition): 244 pages.
This incredible book was sent to me some years ago by Patrick Ferryn who is an enthusiast of Mereaux’s work. I immediately felt that someone needed to make his original research available in English because it is meaningful to everyone interested in megalithic construction and cultures worldwide.
I had the good fortune to meet Mereaux in Brussels in 1994 and he graciously corrected my translation and encouraged my efforts.
Why is this book so important? Mostly because Mereaux asks many of the same questions that we have been asking about our enigmatic American stonework, but he looks at these questions in a very original way and in great detail.
