Geocache Description:


La fabrication de l'ardoise est probable au XIII eme siècle, elle est certaine au XIV eme siècle en Anjou.
Après le grand essor de la Renaissance, l'industrie ardoisière subit une crise dans la seconde moité du XVII eme siècle.Le nombre de carrières a diminué fortement pendant la Révolution.
Les conditions rudes et les faillites à répétition ont amené les entrepreneurs angevins à conclure des alliances pour aboutir en 1894 à la création de la « Commission des Ardoisières d'Angers » et de la « société Ardoisière de l'Anjou".
Seule la première subsistera.

Manufacturing slate is likely to XIIIth century, it is certain the XIV th century Anjou.
After the big boom of the Renaissance, the slate industry is undergoing a crisis in the second part of XVII th century.The number of careers has declined sharply during the Revolution.
The harsh conditions and multiple bankruptcies have led local owners alliances to achieve in 1894 the creation of the "Commission des Ardoisières d'Angers" and "societe des Ardoisière de l'Anjou”.
Only the first remains.

Bonne chance à toutes et à tous - Good luck everybody!
