‘What is it?’ you may well ask when confronted by this stone artefact in the nearby village of Bonnefont.
It is – and there aren’t many of them about – part of a granite funerary ‘coffre’. The hole in the middle was designed to hold an urn of ashes and it would originally have stood on a pedestal. That has long gone, which is why the whole thing looks so short. It dates from the 4th century.
