  • The department Aube has an important concentration of megaliths that can mostly be found in the north-western part of the department, the Nogentais. Standing stones, dolmens and grooves are all stones that tell of a distant past, the upper Neolithic (2500 to 2000 B.C.).

    The humans of that age made use of a material that abounded on the territory, the sandstone of Cuise that was formed in the lower Eocene period (53 million years B.C.). This fact explains the presence of megaliths on our territory.
