A small area - 1,625 hectares - which, if one considers in particular
the work of erosion of the sea and the gradual subsidence of the soil,
suggests that the peninsula of Quiberon was once much more extensive.
How about a trip in the heart of its history? Did you know that until the 11th century, Quiberon was an island? The peninsula, as we know it today, is the result of an intensive deforestation and a progressive movement towards the Bay of very large quantities of sand, creating a strip of sand called "tombolo" between the island and the mailand. On the other hand, the island was already inhabited, according to the human graves and skeletons dating from the Mesolithic and found on the islet of Téviec situated to the west of the Isthmus of the peninsula of Quiberon - 5,000 years BC! At that time, the sea level was 12 meters lower than today and Téviec, a rocky point. Today, one can admire its beach from the isthmus of Penthièvre. It is below the top of the island that twenty-one deceased, adorned with thousands of multicolored shells, were discovered between 1928 and 1930. Flint knife blades, arrows, axes, bone stylets, tool pebbles ... are as many witnesses dating back more than 7,000 years: certainly the first marine cemetery.
