The history of Cesar in Gaul is a fascinating account of a clash of cultures & the imposing of Imperial might of Rome in Gaul (modern-day France). Mayenne region has a fantastic archaeological example with the arrival of the Romans at the beginning of the 1st century. Clashing with the 4th largest fortified Gaul city 'Oppidum' in France; 145-hectare site with double ramparts was located just 6 klm from the centre of ville Mayenne; the town of Moulay thrives on the location today. The new Roman town is established during the reorganization of the territory operated by Augustus. Over time the Moulay Oppidum is abandoned. The following century was a cycle of oppression and rebellion, decimating the populations of the Gauls from Normandy to Le Mans. You don’t need to stretch your imagination much to see ancient Noviodunum (The New Fortress), created in the heart of the Gaulish territory of the Aulerci Diaulitae. At the site of a Gallic sanctuary. Noviodunum appears around the 1st century AD. Peaking by 65AD but occupied as an important centre until the 4th century.
- sophisticated Roman baths with hot and cold-water plunge pools
