We invite you to come and discover an archaeological site full of mystery and to preserve the heritage of Clermont L'Herault! Thanks to a strong partnership with the municipality and the volunteers of the association GREC (Groupe de Recherche et d'Etudes du Clermontais) specialized in archaeology, you will be able to get involved in the development of the oppidum and to promote access to this exceptional natural and cultural site.
The protohistoric oppidum (between the 6th and 3rd century BC) was the subject of archaeological excavations between 1983 and 1990. Under the supervision of the archaeologists we carried out two workamps last year which allowed us to bring the site back to life and to preserve it. This year we propose to continue this project which also includes the enhancement of the footpaths for the great pleasure of hikers and tourists.
The aim of this project is therefore to enhance the rich natural, cultural and archaeological heritage of Clermont L'Herault.
You will thus be able to work on consolidating the existing low walls using traditional and ancient dry-stone techniques. You will also develop hiking trails and participate in the installation of markers and signs to help walkers discover the richness of the site.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
In tents in a campsite on the shores of the Salagou lake. Bring a warm sleeping bag. Camp mats will be available, but you can bring your own for extra comfort. You will share collective tasks and prepare meals together. A budget will be allocated to the camp leaders and you will participate in the shopping. We will use healthy and local products.
