To our files on the megalithic sites of France at
I have uploaded the file
showing a map of the decipherment of megalithic sites in Brittany.
The general positions are as follows:
Lanvenael represents the front three stars of Scorpio – including
Dschubba and Graffias.
St. Guénolé and Pointe de la Torche represent stars to the right
side of these three stars.
Lesconil, Plouhinec and Douarnenez represent Antares and stars to
Crozon and Camaret represent stars in the middle of Scorpio, i.e. at
the middle along its axis toward the back stars of Scorpio.
St. Mathieu, Plouarzel, Portsall and Ploudalmézeau represent stars
at the back of Scorpio including Plouarzel as marking the star
Girtab and Portsall marking the star Shaula (perhaps there is some
ancient relation between the terms SALL and SHAULA).

But it is not only Scorpio which is represented by Brittany in the
ancient geodetic scheme.
The stars of Serpens Cauda are represented by the megalithic sites
of Brignogan, Plouescat, Barnenez, Lannion and Lezardrieux.
The stars of Ophiuchus are represented by the megalithic sites of
Mur-de Bretagne (St.-Gilles-Vieux-Marche), Rostrennen, Huelgoat,
Commana, Tregon, Saint-Samson-sur-Rance (La Temblais), Chateauneuf
and Dol de Bretagne.
Stars of Serpens Caput are represented by Janze and Broceliande in
Paimpoint, with the latter known as Merlin's Grave, just as Serpens
Caput also marks "Merlin's Grave" at Paviland and the nearby
Arthur's Stone Maen Ceti in Wales in the United Kingdom.
