Le cromlech Méatsé 8 (Commune d‟Itxassou, Labourd)

Abstract : The cromlech Meatse 8, of 4,30 m in diameter, presents a crown showing the form of a small wall made of flagstones piled up, separated at regular intervals by others vertically, in radial position. The small central coffer made of 8 flagstones vertically planted, is surron-ded by an aggregation of small flagstones, having more an esthetic reason than to hold up. The care brought to the architecture, as well as the absence of objects, or of burned bones, make of this cromlech, which is besides the oldest known in the Basque Country (datation by 14C : 2960 ± 501, an excellent symbolic monument.
