EAD23 at Musée Gallo-Romain de Saint-Romain-en-Gal

Kind of Event
Guided Tour

Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Exceptionally, the archaeologists of the sites of Saint-Romain-en-Gal invite you to discover their profession. Follow them, listen to them talk about their daily work, their research issues: between field work, office work, investigations in the archives...

From the preparation of excavation sites to the publication of scientific data, they will discuss with you their daily actions, their methodological reflections and will reveal their working tools. How to dig with mechanical shovels without damaging the remains hidden in the basement? What are the administrative constraints of heritage-related legislation? Why observe soil morphology and produce topographic surveys? How is the investigative work going? How to decipher old documents and exploit the archives?

So many questions to share, and insights with the museum's archaeologists. From site to office, discover all the steps that characterize their work in archaeological research.


  • Meetings to discover the diversity of the tasks of an archaeologist on a site: Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
  • Site visits: Saturday and Sunday at 2.30 p.m., 3.30 p.m. and 4.30 p.m.

On reservation the same day at the reception.


Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.

Echoing the programming of the François Ponsard Theater (Vienne), and Carolyn Carlson's latest creation, The tree at the Manège (Vienne), the students of the 3rd cycle of contemporary dance at the Music and Dance Conservatory of Vienna , supervised by Morgane Michel, will perform an adapted and ambulatory version of the work.

Choreographed for the high school girls of the conservatory by Isida Micani (dancer of the company), the essence and the gesture of the subject of this piece will be presented to you among the works and the off-stage space of the museum, highlighting within the framework of the days of archeology "  transmission as a vector of timelessness  ".

Ambulatory show in the permanent collections.
Limited gauge, reservation recommended.


Saturday from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Texts by Clément Vert and illustrations by Romain Maynard. In partnership with the L'encre des Mariniers bookstore in Condrieu.

This travel diary recounts “the ascent” of the Rhône as sailors say, in Antiquity by a Gallo-Roman who must bring back a mysterious box to the villa of Licinius in Clonas. This historical account makes us travel on the river according to the vagaries of the weather and informs us about the perilous navigation in the 2nd century AD. Places and geography are scrupulously respected; the fictional but realistic narrative is completed with blue notes inserted into the text which make it accessible to a wide audience. An original discovery in text and a good trip Along the ancient Rhône . Notebook produced in partnership with the Compagnie Nationale du Rhône (CNR) and the Janus association of Clonas-sur-Varèze (38).

Reservations on 04 74 54 12 13 or the same day within the limit of available places.


Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. (continuous).

Around the model of a reconstructed excavation area, discover with the family with the mediators, the work of the archaeologist at the heart of the permanent collection.

Free access within the limit of the gauge, reservation recommended.
