Explore this unique archaeological park and discover what life was like in Frankish and Merovingian times! Reconstructions of a Frankish village, an archaeological garden and a Merovingian necropolis will show you how people lived and worked in France in the early Middle Ages.

There is a show area where batle reenactments and other events are acted out, and inside the museum you will find a sarcophagus that was excavated from this site as well as jewellery, tools and ceramics that have also been discovered. Approved by a scientific committee and built on land where a necropolis once stood, this park is a fun way to learn about this era of France's past.
