Neolithic site in Brittany, consisting of two long cairns, one of which contained 11 passage graves, placed side by side. They display a range of architectural techniques, using both large megalithic slabs and drystone walling; some chambers had corbelled vaults. Corrected radiocarbon dates suggest that the site was used in the 5th millennium bc, making it one of the earliest megalithic tombs in Europe. See also corbel,
