Neolithic Tumulus Interior, Locmariaquer

The interior chamber of the stone burial mound known as the Table-des-Marchands (Table of Merchants) at the Neolithic site of Locmariaquer in north-west France. The tomb was constructed in the 5th millennium BCE and is so called because of the large flat stone which creates the ceiling of the inner tomb chamber.
