Geocache Description:




La tour et son adorable jardin (7 septembre 2012)

Cette petite horloge est tout ce qui nous reste d'un grand passé.

Les premières traces de la vie à Arignac remontent au néolithique comme l’ont démontré les fouilles de l’abri de Rode. Deux haches en bronze sont trouvées, en 1907, aux carrières d’Arignac, dans les éboulis du Soudour. Au pied de ce même roc, des débris d’amphores gallo-romaines… attestent d’une présence fort ancienne.

Des écrits mentionnent un castrum et un château au XIIIe siècle, mais il n'en reste aucun vestige. Les ruines de la tour féodale ont été rasées au XIXe et remplacées par l'horloge. Cassini, au XVIIIe siècle, signalait déjà son château ruiné.
Une jolie vue vous attend là-haut et ce n'est pas bien loin !

ATTENTION : nous découvrons la présence d'une ciste dans le même trou que notre "trésor" ! La ciste est un bocal de verre alors que notre geocache est une petite boîte noire style boîte de pellicule. Ne vous trompez pas ! Regardez bien, car le bocal de verre peut cacher la boîte noire.

Bon Géocaching !
********************************************************************

This little clock is all that remains of a great past.


The first traces of life date back to Neolithic Arignac as demonstrated by the excavations in the shelter of Rode. Two bronze axes were found in 1907 in Arignac quarries, in the fallen rocks of Soudour. At the foot of that rock, debris from Gallo-Roman amphorae attest ... a very ancient presence.

Writings mention a castrum and a castle in the thirteenth century, but no trace of it remains. The ruins of the feudal tower were demolished in the nineteenth and replaced by the clock. Cassini, in the eighteenth century, already reported its ruined castle. A beautiful view awaits you up there and it's not far away!

WARNING:
we discover the presence of a ciste in the same hole as our "treasure"! The ciste is a glass jar while our geocache is a small black box, like a film canister. Don't be mistaken! Have a gook good, because the glass jar may hide the black box.

Happy Geocaching!
