Roman Paris (Lutetia)

http://www.paris.culture.fr/en/

An interesting and well-done site about Paris during Roman times, including finds.

If anyone is visiting Paris there is also an interesting archaeological museum/excavation about Paris in the cellars of Notre Dame. I visited it 18 months ago and I assume it is still open, perhaps Jérôme can confirm.

I don't think that there is any reason for it to be closed. See http://www.paris.fr/portail/english/...t?page_id=8229

"Crypte Archéologique du Parvis de Notre-Dame

The archaeological crypt under Notre-Dame Cathedral Square has been converted into a shelter for relics found in the course of 1965 and later excavations run by the city’s archaeological and architectural history office.
These rooms opened in 1980 to show the remainders of the buildings that had stood on that spot from ancient times to the 19th century. Musée Carnavalet operates this site.
"

Another good occasion to visit is the biannual Paris coin fair next Saturday!
