Dept. Seine-et-Oise, France.
La Millière is a wooded site in the commune of Les
Mesnuls in the canton of Rambouillet, on the edge of
the state forest, the Forêt de Rambouillet. Its name
may be a reminder that a milestone stood here in ancient times which has now disappeared. Excavations
carried out here since 1965 have uncovered a villa
with a galleried facade forming a rectangle 30 x 25 m.
The base of the walls is still covered with frescoes
showing life-size people with birds, flowers, and plants.
The building may be dated from the 2d c. and the first
half of the 3d c.
