Dolmens
A relatively well-preserved dolmen composed of five stones stands at a place called ‘Champ Guilhem’ by some and ‘Camp Guilhem’ by others. It is believed to be the burial chamber of a military chief called Guilhem killed in battle at this site.

In the hamlet of ‘Peyra-Levada’ near La Robertie is a second dolmen, 3,70m high and 2,80m wide.

A third dolmen can be seen along the Bourdil path and goes by the name of ‘The General’s Tomb’.
All three dolmens are referred to by Monsieur Bertrand. The latter two have been described and drawn by Monsieur L. Drouyn who has also sketched a rock known as ‘Al Roc del Ser’ or ‘Roc du Sec’ which he believes equally to be a megalithic monument. This stone is, today, virtually buried. The Camp Guilhem dolmen is mentioned in the ‘Périgord Illustré’, p547.
