Archaeological activities at Roche-Courbon
A necropolis from the early Middle Ages is located on the estate. The DRAC (Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs) gave authorization for a stripping campaign in 2011 and monitored it.
Other works :
Cleaning Iron Age tombs.
Cleaning an antique enclosure.
We offer school groups a guided tour on the theme of Prehistory. (from May to September) Children discover camps recreated from the life of prehistoric men: handling tools, shooting with a spear gun or archery, discovery of fishing equipment and lots of little games to play on the camps . An excavation module has also been reconstituted to try to understand how archaeologists work. The visit can be completed by an explanation of the excavation module, with an evocation of sedentarization and the organization of agriculture.
Duration of the visit: 1h30 or 2h. Levels: all cycles, from 6 years old. Access to the Museum of Prehistory and Gardens is included in the visit.
