Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Going "off the beaten track" is a great way to experience some of central Brittany's ancient mysteries without the crowds. On the "Locminé Loop" tour you will visit some of the Locminé area's lesser known archaeological gems.

In groups of up to seven guests we will rendezvous in the center of Locminé, before heading off in our vehicles into the surrounding countryside to explore half a dozen sites, where you will be in the hands of an experienced archaeologist who is a native English speaker.

Your guide will take the lead in his own vehicle, stopping at various points on the tour to share the magic and stories of some wonderful locations that are easily missed by most visitors. These sites range from picturesque to breathtaking.

Throughout the tour your guide will be happy to answer your questions, helping you to appreciate and understand the ingenuity of the ancient people and cultures that created these intriguing monuments.

The tour will take up to three and a half hours, ending back in Locminé where there will be the opportunity to talk over what you have seen at any of the local bars or restaurants (depending on local opening times and Covid 19 restrictions permitting).

Since early childhood, when I lived near Stonehenge, I've been fascinated by archaeology.
In my thirties I trained and qualified as a field archaeologist and, now that I have moved to Brittany, I am lucky enough to live in the heart of one of Europe's most amazing archaeological regions.
Having specialised in the prehistoric sites of Southern England (most notably Stonehenge and it's surroundings) I was awarded a masters degree for my work on the earliest known houses in England. I continue to be drawn by a desire to understand the lives of prehistoric people and never cease to be amazed that cultures on both sides of the English Channel were in regular contact with each other.
Being a qualified teacher has given me a love of story-telling which, I hope will help you to share the magic of the sites we will visit

To say this tour is worth every penny would be a colossal understatement! Not only are the sites themselves amazing but the tour will completely change the way you look at any sites you’ll visit on your own in the future. Philip teaches you a great deal on the tour, for example how to read patterns in the surrounding landscape which may lead to new discoveries of your own! Amazing guide, amazing value! Do not miss this!

I booked the tour for my parents, here's their comments: For a few hours Philip takes us to distant worlds - Paleolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Age. He makes us discover his passion, his researchs and his discoveries. An extraordinary moment. Where we tell ourselves that so far from us, people have created extraordinary things that are still present today. Beyond the stones, he makes us discover the knowledge of an era, of a world where the sciences, architecture were already very advanced and yet this world, what remains of it, these stones are twice as older thaï the egyptian pyramids !!! Those megaliths widespread throughout Europe, starting from Brittany. Whether you are visiting Brittany, or whether you are Bretons living among menhirs and dolmens, what Philip introduces you to and what he shares with you, opens your eyes and is extraordinary. Truly a moment of discovery to be recommended.

Großartig! Ein Highlight unseres Urlaubs! Philip hat uns einen hochinteressanten Einblick in eine faszinierende Zeit gegeben. Endlich haben wir etwas Ahnung über Herkunft, Bearbeitung, Transport, Bau u Nutzung dieser ältesten Zeugen unserer Geschichte. Philips Tour war toll geplant u strukturiert. Seine Begeisterung für das Menhire und Dolmen Thema ist ansteckend. Alle Orte der Tour mit dem Auto zu erreichen hat den Radius vergrößert und die Möglichkeit eröffnet an besondere Plätze zu kommen. Die Tour war für uns ein kulturell-geschichtliches Highlight der Bretagne und durch Philips Freude an der Sache auch ein kleines Abenteuer!
