Discovery of the archaeological site of Saint-Saturnin-du-Bois
On the first stroke of the shovel, Gallo-Roman remains are discovered. Archaeologists discovered that the site was occupied continuously for more than 8 centuries!

Since then, archaeologists have relentlessly pursued the excavation work on the ground that allows us to better understand the lifestyle of our ancestors.
