The war to conquer Gaul, undertaken against the Gauls (from 58 to 51/50 BC) by Roman general Julius Caesar, lead to colonisation and set the beginning of "Pax Romana".
Emperor Augustus (ruling from 27 BC to 14 AD) organises Gaul in a few provinces, divided in districts: civitates.These cities from the first century BC use the limits of the the Gauls' territories.
The Armorican peninsula is therefore made of 5 cities, occupied by Osismii, Veneti, Namnetes, Redones, Coriosolites. Each territory has its capital; for the Corisolites it'll be Corseul!
Through a policy of assimilation, skilful mix of obligations and rewards, Rome succeds in adminstering Armorica.
The Antonine dynasty (96-192 AD) sets a golden age. The Coriosolites' city develops and its population is then estimated to be around 5000 inhabitants.
Relive this era by following in the footsteps of the Romans and, think of the fact that under your feet treasures sleeps!
The Centre d'Interprétation du Patrimoine CORISOLIS (Heritage Interpretative Centre) unveils the secrets and the way of life of Corseul's Gallo-Roman inhabitants. It can be visited all year round. Discover this recreational museographic space, interactive, and reachable by all publics!
