Summary:
Seven thousand years ago, peoples living on the Atlantic shores erected thousands of gigantic stones in Western Europe. A millennium before the first cuneiform alphabets of Mesopotamia or Egyptian hieroglyphics, they engraved stylized signs that has long remained a mystery. An international team has been able to decipher this original language, shared by all the Atlantic cultures during the Neolithic. Based on new techniques of aerial and underwater surveys, as well as on spectacular 3D reconstructions, this discovery changes our look on European Prehistory forever.
