THE TEMPORARY EXHIBITION

In July and August, Micro-Folie hosts an exhibition on the theme of

“Bridiers, 2000 years of history”

The nave of the chapel changes its configuration to accommodate archaeological pieces found on the site of Bridiers in La Souterraine, well known for its twelfth-century keep. But Bridiers is a much older site, occupied during the High Empire and even from the end of the Iron Age! Through this exhibition it is this history that you will be able to discover but also those that followed and its discoveries: ceramics, coins and statues… which continue today thanks to archaeological excavations.
