Dept. Haute Vienne France.
A prehistoric oppidum at the place called Chegurat. Of the fortified spur type, it overlooks the Semme valley.
In 1961 a dig at the village of La Bussière-Etable
revealed a Gallo-Roman settlement that was occupied
from the 1st to the 3d c. A.D. When a tumulus was excavated in 1956, also at La Bussière-Etable, a chariot
tomb was found dating from the time of the barbarians
(3d c A.D.); it held a large number of grave gifts that
can be seen at the Musée des Antiquités Nationales at
St. Germain-en-Laye. At the Musée Notre Terroir at
Châteauponsac can be seen burial chests and Gallo-Roman objects uncovered in the course of the various excavations in this commune.
