The construction of a new highway has revealed archaeological treasures and exceptional information about one of the richest region of France and Europe.
The construction of a new highway near the city of Orleans has permitted to excave archaeological treasures and reveal exceptional information about one of the richest region of French and European History. 250 archaeologists have only 18 months to explore the 100 kilometers of the site, before the complete destruction of these precious and fragile trails of the past. Despite the difficult climatic conditions, the fruitful scientific discoveries completed by CGI reconstructions, are taking us on the long roads of times from Neolithic Age to the 15th Century.
