History of the monument

A 20th century find. First identified in the 19th century, systematic excavation only began in 1946 and continued until 1960 under the direction of Georges Fouet (1922-1993). The most ancient part, the residential section, now open to the public, dates from the 1st century. It was extended and enhanced in the 4th century then remained occupied until the early 6th century. The area where the accommodation and farming outbuildings (forges, brick and tile production, weaving, etc.) stood stretched to the southeast of the bath wing. It was buried again once it had been studied.
