OPPIDUM DE PECH MAHO
Last update 11/01/2023
The oppidum was founded in the last quarter of the 6th century or at the turn of the 5th century BC. The site was selected for 3 advantages: shaped like spur creating a barrage, it was easy to defend in case of attack; the proximity to the Etangs de Bages and Sigean that were connected to the sea and navigable at the time; finally, Via Herculea passed nearby, crossing a ford on the Berre on its way to the site.
