The Camel Stones





While Looking for the Necropolis of Elles I got lost and happened upon some megaliths.

(To see details of my visit to Elles - http://www.travelblog.org/Africa/Tunisia/Le-Kef/blog-782270.html)



I found 3 different sites while driving down the wrong road:


• One looks like a pile of stones
• One is a single Standing stone next to the road
• The other is a set of 3 standing stones between the road and a farm.



There is no town town nearby, so for now I am going to call them the 'Camel Stones' in honour of Tunisia's famous animal.



There were many quarries in the area and while driving around I noticed many stones that could have been the remnants of megalithic structures left by our ancestors. This area definitely warrants a return or a visit by someone with a lot more time than I had on this day



I submitted this site to megalithic.co.uk - http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=33974
