Archaeological Site and Museum of Javols




Under the village of Javols, located 6kms from Aumont-Aubrac sits Anderitum the former Gallo-Roman capital of the Gabales, the Celtic people who occupied the Gevaudan (representing the current department of Lozere).


Today, the remains are exposed to the Archaeological Museum and a circuit of approximately 1 hour explains the history of the excavations and the key points of Anderitum.



In addition to various educational workshops and interventions – intended for the public and schools – to apprehend archeology, the Javols Museum also sets up exhibitions [this year for the 20 years of the Museum discover the summer exhibition “20 years of urban legends in Javols” that invites you to revisit all these rumors, ideas received, a priori, that the research on the city of Anderitum allowed to disassemble] and even organizes a festival of ancient know-how called the Gabalades which will take place on August 11 and 12, 2018.


Projects abound in Javols : at the beginning of the year the mobile app “Javols 3D” was designed and now allows visitors to explore the buried Gallo-Roman capital, as it was two thousand years ago and as if you were through virtual reality headsets!





June to September from Monday to Friday from 10h to 12h and from 14h to 17h30 and in summer (July / August) every day (except Sunday morning) from 10h-12h and 14h-18h30.
