This distinctive historical and archaeological guidebook to France introduces the reader and traveller to the palpable remains of past cultures that shaped the development of the modern country. A chronological description of the important epochs, from the first appearance of humans in France down to medieval times, is followed by a portrayal of archaeological monuments and details of their exact location. These include prehistoric cave paintings, villages, necropoli, megaliths, Celtic forts and historic Roman and Gallo-Roman remains (including towns, temples, villas, bridges, roads, and aqueducts), early Christian churches, chapels and murals, as well as medieval structures, fortifications, and cemeteries. This book can be used as a field manual to readily find and explore France's ancient heritage or as a reference for those who cannot visit the sites but are interested in the legacy of the past.
