Thanks to its complex patterning, the stone of the roof on Gavrinis has been identified as part of the same piece as the dolmen known as the Table des Marchands at Locmariaquer, 12km east of Carnac. Locmariaquer also has the Grand Menhir Brisé, supposedly the crucial central point of the megalithic observatory of Carnac. Before being floored by an earthquake in 1722, it was by far the largest known menhir – 22m high and weighing more than a full jumbo jet at 347 tonnes. It now lies on the ground in four pieces, with a possible fifth missing.
