Les quais romains d’Aizier (Eure)

Abstract : Located on the left bank of the Seine, between Rouen and Le Havre, the ancient port of Aizier has been the subject of a research programme between 2005 and 2013. Part of the province of Gallia Lugdunensis, this paleo-port appears to have been well positioned, within an estuary, in the immediate vicinity of Lillebonne/Juliobona, capital of the Caleti, on the opposite bank. Adjacent to Aizier, on the south bank, two ancient Roman roads converge, one coming from Brionne/Breviodurum and the other from Lisieux/Noviomagus. The site has revealed the remains of an ensemble of Roman stone harbour terraces, observed over an area of about 335 m2, and including numerous reconstructions, likely in response to different berthing and current realities. The position of this breaking-point for this ancient loading quay is interesting, especially in light of the Roman occupations attested for the same period at the level of this loop of the Seine river, during the 2nd and 3rd c. AD.
