MOSAIQUE APRES NETTOYAGE Aventicum – Site et Musée romains d’Avenches

Exhibition - A mosaic under the asphalt

May 11, 2022 - May 30, 2022
Avenches - Exposition

This exceptional mosaic was found during work on the Route du Faubourg.

In August 2018, a luxurious Roman mosaic was discovered during an archaeological excavation along the Route du Faubourg, south of the Avenches hill.
Decorated with birds drinking from a fountain, but also made up of the most famous marbles from around the Mediterranean, its manufacturing technique and decoration are particularly original. Remarkably preserved, this pavement was removed for conservation and then restored for public display.
It is being exhibited for the first time from 11 to 30 May in the main hall of the Theatre of Avenches Castle. Free admission.

A guided tour is organised by Avenches Tourism on 24 May from 7 to 8 pm. Information and registration under the "Links" tab.
