Ancient At-At Walker

This neolithic dolmen reminds me very much of an At-At Walker from Star Wars. Sure it’s not armored as the name should suggest, it can’t shoot lasers, and it doesn’t quite have the right number of legs, but it was only a prototype and was improved upon over time.

If this were my At-At, I would name him Ivan. To be honest I’m not very imaginative when it comes to names, and really took that from the title given to these stones by other people, for this is Pentre Ifan in Wales. If I believe the few items I’ve read, then this was built for the purpose of being a burial tomb.

Burial tomb/prehistoric walker on an intergalactic mission – whatever. It’s all the same, right?
