Type: Occupation Site
Date: Neolithic / Chalcolithic / Bronze Age / Iron Age / Roman
Description:  A complex multi period site positioned below an imposing pinnacle of rock. Two earth and rubble ramparts have been attributed to the Neolithic/Chalcolithic periods and a third to the Bronze Age. Iron Age occupation is attributed to 6 pieces of iron. In Roman times a rectangular (11.2m x 9.15m) Gallo-Roman temple was constructed. Amongst the large number of finds from various excavations are flints, hammers, rubbers, polishing stones, a copper arrow head, bronze spear head, wheel turned pottery and a Roman coin.
Location: On the coast, west of Le Chemin des Landes.
