They had skyscrapers in the Neolithic, too.

Somebody set this up more than 2000 years ago. The old Celtic core of Brittany is still there for anyone who looks. But in AD 769, Charlemagne ordered local evangelists to slap crosses onto gorgeous old pagan Menhirs all over western Europe. So for about 3 millenia, this standing stone in Brignognan looked the way it was meant to. However, no one remembers it now without the graffiti crucifix. But we know the truth.

  1. Ní fheicfear corrán im' láimh chun bainte, Súiste ná feac beag rainne, Ach bratacha na bhFranncach os cionn mo leapan, Is píce agam chun sáite...

    You'll not see a hook in my hand for harvesting, A flail or a short spade,
    But the flag of France over my bed...
