Professional and amateur archaeologists alike are in for a treat at this major site in the heart of Les Rues des Vignes village.

Less than thirty years old, this unique archeological site continues to increase in popularity


It is a place where vestiges of the past can be found and where living conditions from a thousand years ago can be experienced through the various craft workshops run (potters, weavers and thatchers).

In the course of the excavations that were carried out between 1979 and 1986, 9 Gallo-roman vaults, 342 Merovagian graves, silos and holes made by posts were found and recalled the existence of a post Carolingian settlement.

Guided tour every Sunday at 3 p.m. and the workshops are suitable for adults and children alike.
