Dept. Seine-et-Marne, France.
Situated in the arrondissement of Provins, in
the canton of Vihliers-Saint Georges, it marks the site
of a Gallo-Roman village that was inhabited to the
3d c. It was located on the outskirts of the civitas Meldorum and the civitas Senonorum. Many objects from
the 2d and 3d c. have been found there. Since 1960 underground Gallo-Roman huts, cut out of the bess or
built of stone, have been unearthed. This type of dwelling therefore seems to cover the whole of the period
of the Early Empire, and it also turns up later in the
same area: in 1964 two sunken houses that were inhabited in the mid 4th c. were discovered near the
village of Neufmontiers-les-Meaux (Seine-et-Marne).
