On a beach in Normandy, unprecedented archaeological discoveries lead a team of archaeologists on the trail of a Celtic people whose culture seems to differ from that of their neighbours in the rest of Gaul. Beneath the fine sand, exceptionally well-preserved remains gradually resurface. Time is running out before marine erosion destroys forever the last traces of the lives of the men and women who lived here between the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. Little by little, the investigation gives us an idea of the way of life of this seaside people and the links they maintained with the Mediterranean world and with the populations of the island of Brittany, in what is now England.
