centuries the substratum of this little town ca. 30 km
from Nantes has yielded archaeological remains dating
from the Late Empire. A good deal of pottery has been
uncovered, including a hemispherical bowl of terra sigillata with a molded design depicting Trajan's victory over
the Daci under Decebalus. Most of the objects found at
Blain are housed in the Mairie.
