Archaeological Park of Lozes

Aussois - MO. JL Rigaux - OT AUSSOIS

The Archaeological Park takes visitors back in time. Near the village ofAussois, our ancestors engraved hundreds of signs on the rock from 1000 BC to the Middle Ages. Educational trail accessible outside snow season.

Description

The engravings, discovered for the first time in 1977, testify to a human occupation, linked to the passageways to Italy, between the Neolithic and the Iron Age. The engravings were made on the rocks polished by the ancient glacier of the Arc, by staking or chiseling, with stone tools.
2 educational paths with reading tables are set up. They allow to identify and to understand the meaning of the engravings.
For a better observation accentuating the reliefs and the contours, privilege the visit at the beginning of the morning or in the evening.
