A few years ago we had a photo from the Mason Collection of the Brownshill Dolmen in Co Carlow. I hope this photo will prove more of a challenge, I am thinking that it will be difficult to fix on the correct location. That said, I have been wrong in the past!

As he has done before, derangedlemur was able to extend his location-identification skills to points foreign, and established that this is the Pierre levée dolmen in Poitiers in France. The grapes in the foreground helped :)
