Seventy former excavators of Uxellodunum and other stakeholders met on 1st April 2018 to celebrate together more than 20 years of archaeological work conducted collectively on the site of Puy d'Issolud under the direction of Jean-Pierre Girault, archaeologist.
Thanks to all these efforts, under Jean-Pierre Girault's very competent leadership, Puy-d'Issolud, a major site of national history, was formalised on 26th April 2001 by the Ministry of Culture as being the site of Uxellodunum. described by Caesar in La Guerre des Gaules.
A picnic lunch was followed by a walk to the site. The sun, shy so far this year, shone brightly on Puy d'Issolud. The evening meal was accompanied by movies, songs, stories, and slideshows. We celebrated together the great adventure of Uxellodunum.
