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
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.
