LA CHAPELLE-MONTBRANDEIX Dept. Haute Vienne, France.

In 1880 a Gallo-Roman settlement with two hypocausts, was discovered at Artimache. Two skeletons were found in a room 2 m sq, lying on a pink concrete floor.

An important Gallo-Roman site is just now being excavated at the place called Les Couvents. Thanks to this work, begun in 1968, the underlying ruins of a Gallo-Roman settlement have been unearthed as well as a potter's oven, perfectly preserved.

From the finds made so far it is evident that the site was occupied from the 1st c. A.D. Objects found there can be seen at the town hall of Chapelle-Montbrandeix.
