You will approach different techniques and methods of archeology: sedimentary excavation, recording of data, survey and drawing, treatment of archaeological objects.

The site of the motte castrales of Cabanac-et-Villagrains has been the subject of archaeological research since 2016. A motte castrale is an earth fortification generally associated with a farmyard. Sometimes considered as a "primitive fortified castle", the mound appeared in the year 1000 and was gradually abandoned in favor of stone castles. The Cabanac site, comprising two clods and several farmyards, has remarkably preserved remains, the majority of which remain to be discovered.

During this fourth excavation campaign, research will focus for the first time on the summit of the western motte which

Provide site shoes, clothing, rain boots and cap.
We work from Monday to Friday. The weekend is dedicated to exploring the region.

This site will allow you to discover the natural and cultural heritage of Bordeaux.
