An archaeological walk round Nyon



The remains of Roman Nyon are buried right under the centre of the modern town.  The great majority of the monuments discovered by the archaeologists have thus had to be covered over again or destroyed after being documented, studied and photographed.  Only the archaeological material and the transportable remains have been taken to the Roman Museum for exhibition or are stored in the depot.

Some imprints of the Roman past, however, are still visible in the streets for those who know where to look and have a little imagination.  A discovery trail, a sort of Roman trip round the Colonia Iulia Equestris, will take you where you least expect.

Signs have been put up at various points in the centre of the town to remind passers-by of the existence of the Roman remains.  Some of them are also indicated by differences in the paving, marking their exact position under your feet.

In order to allow you to discover the location of the remains concealed in the town we propose a discovery trail questionnaire for you to answer.  Come to the Museum after for the answers!
