Sens is an ancient town in the Champagne region of central France. Before Roman domination it had been the capital of the Gallic Senones tribe, which gave the town its name.
Marcel Mestdagh firmly believed that Sens was the capital of an ancient culture that he equated with Atlantis. Filip Coppens, a keen student of Mestdagh’s research, has promoted his work, providing a brief overview of Mestdagh’s discoveries in one of his last books[1275.188]. Mestdagh identified a form of road system, laid out in giant ovals with radials centred on the ancient city of Sens where the greatest concentration of megalithic monuments in France existed(a) . Coppens also notes the remarkable fact that Mestdagh also discovered a similar road system in England centred on Nottingham!
