Hi Geoff, great location !!

Island Gavrinis, Betagne France
is a small island, situated in the Gulf of Morbihan in Brittany, France. It contains the Gavrinis tomb, a megalithic monument notable for its abundance of megalithic art in the European Neolithic. Around 3000 BC.

Congratulations Felix, you cracked it,
It is the Megalithic tomb on the Island of Gavrinis, Brittany.
[For those who had not spotted it; it's the circular object, with an east facing stone entrance, on the south of the island.]
So it's back over to you. . .

Geoff I have added your WOGE on facebook.

WOGE115 is ready for hunting.

Thank you for waiting. It has been an easy WOGE if one has seen this 'unique' structure before. The only problem was, I think, to find the right one out of the 250 existing ones. If nobody finds it within 2 days maybe you want to claim it.
