November 2015 : "L'habitat Gaulois et gallo-romain dans la vallée de la Dordogne" by Jean-Pierre Girault
This new publication describes the habitat of the Gauls and Gallo-Romans in the Dordogne valley as revealed by research in 80 communes of Lot and Corrèze.
Many traces of the habitat of this period do exist, but most would remain unknown if this inventory had not been produced by a small group of historians and archeologists. Fifteen enlightened professionals and volunteers have joined the action undertaken over almost a half-century by Jean-Pierre Girault.
