7,000 years ago in Brittany, a man was buried with a mysterious ring of jade. Where did this object made of such a rare stone come from ? What did it mean to the Neolithic Men ? The archeologist Yvan Pailler investigates the origins and symbols of the jade ring. From Brittany to Mali, through the Alps and New-Guinea, he discovers people who still make and use stone rings.
