The archaeological park and the lapidary museum

Fifteen centuries of refuge: this was the destiny of Montauban. The spur was occupied by humans five centuries before Christ, a place of refuge in an already troubled time: the same held true from the 3rd century to the 8th century AD, when Germanic tribes invaded Roman Gaul.

The lapidary museum
Located on the fortified site classified as ‘Outstanding heritage of Wallonia’, the lapidary museum is a modernist creation designed by the international architect Constantin Brodzki. It bears witness to three successive periods of occupation from the Iron Age to the Middle Ages. The museum houses a series of Roman bas-reliefs discovered on site. One of these, the famous harvester of Trévires, is currently to be found in the Gaume museum in Virton.
