The dune people - David Geoffroy | Documentary

On a Norman beach, new archaeological discoveries lead a team of archaeologists on the tracks of a Celtic people whose culture seems to differ from that of their neighbors in the rest of Gaul. Under the fine sand, exceptionally well-preserved remains gradually resurface. Time is running out, before marine erosion destroys forever the last traces of the life 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 had with the Mediterranean world and with the populations of the island of Brittany, now England.
