Gavin Dollard, a resident of Ivybridge in Devon, England, is building his own "cromlech," or Bronze Age burial chamber. In a new twist on "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," a Devon farmer has decided to construct his own cromlech, a granite burial tomb. Dollard, who owns an open air art gallery, considers the newly-completed tomb part of his sculpture gallery but still plans to be buried in it. The huge, granite stones for the chamber were brought from nearby Dartmoor and set into place by crane. Experts believe that this is the first such burial site to be constructed in England in 2000 years.
