France: Bavay & Boulogne – Roman ruins revealed

In the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France we visit two archaeological sites: Bavay, capital of the Nervii, and an important commercial centre from which Caesar marched forth on his conquest of Britain; and Boulogne, the harbor where the Roman Classis Britannica was stationed and where underground excavations revealed the foundations of the City’s Gallo-Roman walls. Painted walls, building foundations and artifacts from the sites reveal the significance of these two locations. This is part 1 of 4 in which we cross the English Channel to explore the Roman connection between Nord-Pas-de-Calais in France and Kent, in England.
