A Lantern for the Dead (amongst other wonders).

On my new web-page
devoted to a recent visit to the charming little village
of Château-Larcher, south of the historic city of Poitiers (France),
where there is a Lanterne des Morts in the graveyard,
and a fortified church of similar 12th century date,
whose west front carvings include a monkey playing the pan-pipes.

Two kilometres from the village is a splendid, if somewhat ruined
DOLMEN
built of the local decayed (and perforated) limestone.
