Prehistoric Burial Tombs ~ Dolmen of Lot, France

Dolmen du Lac d'Aurie, Limogne~en~Quercy, Lot, France

A few weeks ago we visited the Lot region of France, and as all good taphophiles do, we visited not only the regular cemeteries whilst there, but also a couple of Prehistoric burials sites too.
The Dolmen in this region come from the Neolithic period 4500 to 2000 years BC. and there are quite a few of them in the area. The dolmen are thought to be burial chambers or tombs as human remains have been found inside and are often accompanied by burial artifacts which have been scientifically dated.
