Geocache Description:

Ce sanctuaire gaulois a été érigé au IIe siècle avant J.C. par les Lemovices sur la route reliant la Bretagne à la Méditerranée. L’étain et le cuivre, transitaient sur cette voie.

Après la conquête de la Gaule par Jules César en -52 av. J-C s’ouvre la période dite « gallo-romaine ».

Le sanctuaire gaulois est détruit et remplacé par un site gallo-romain.

Ce pôle rassemble plusieurs bâtiments publics luxueux et tous à fonction religieuse (temple, théatre, arène, …) .

On a découverts ici plus de 500 objets : carnyx (trompettes de guerre utilisée pour galvaniser les troupes et effrayer l’ennemi.), boucliers, lames et fourreaux d'épées, casques en fer, fers de lance, amphores, pièces de monnaie, … .

Toutes les zones n’ayant pas été explorées, les fouilles se poursuivent toujours de nos jours.


This Gallic sanctuary was erected in the second century BC by the Lemovices on the road linking Brittany to the Mediterranean. Tin and copper passed along this way.

After the conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar in 52 BC begins the so-called "Gallo-Roman" period.
The Gallic sanctuary is destroyed and replaced by a Gallo-Roman site.

This site gathers several luxurious public buildings and all with religious function (temple, theater, arena, ...).

More than 500 objects have been discovered here: carnyx (war trumpets used to galvanize troops and frighten the enemy), shields, blades and sword holsters, iron helmets, spearheads, amphorae, coins, ...

As all the areas have not been explored yet, excavations are still going on today.
