The Museum displays the archaeological finds from prehistory to Gallo-Roman antiquity excavated from the region around the commune of Luzech. Double-sided stone tools resembling arrowheads, scrapers and other objects made from flint give a glimpse into the day-to-life during the prehistoric period. At the end of the nineteenth century, the discovery of the “murus gallicus” (a fortifying wall) prompted a series of archaeological digs on the Oppidum de l’Impernal that yielded a large haul of day-to-day objects from the first century B.C. (pottery, coins and bronze items). The tiles and ceramics found also point to the fact that this site was also inhabited by the Gallo-Romans who used different building methods and materials. The remains of a Celtic temple bear this out.
The Ammonite space displays a collection of more than five hundred ammonites, marine cephalopods that are close to the nautilus which disappeared at the same time as the Dinosaur
