Dr Philippe Gouézin obtained his doctorate in archaeology and archaeometry in 2017 at the University of Rennes 1 at the CReAAH UMR 6566 CNRS laboratory. A specialist in European megalithism and particularly in its architecture, he is director of several research projects in France and also participates in multiple archaeological projects on megalithism in Africa. He is particularly interested in the interaction between the natural world, the world of the dead and the world of the living.
Based on a corpus of architectural plans comprising 1413 megalithic monuments from the Department of Morbihan, including more than 250 unpublished monuments, this book aims at a better understanding of megalithism, or more precisely megalithisms, and presents a new approach to the relationship between standing stones (menhirs) and tombs (dolmens).
