Bagnols-les-Bains in the Lot Valley is renowned for its thermal springs, whose existence was already known in Antiquity. Judging by the vestiges of ancient baths discovered on the left bank of the Lot, the presence of these hot springs probably dictated the establishment here of a small Gallo-Roman town. Other traces of ancient occupation (housing, necropolis) have been found on the right bank.
Meyrueis is located in the Jonte Valley, at the confluence of the Jonte, Brèze and Béthuzon rivers. In Antiquity, an urban area covered part of the present-day town, on the left bank of the Jonte. Its surface area can be estimated at about ten hectares, based on the concentration of vestiges unearthed on the eastern side of the town. Residences (houses with heated floors) and a place of worship (temple) have been discovered.
In 1947, an excavation was conducted on a small Gallo-Roman town dedicated to agriculture and handicrafts in Perjuret (Fraissinet-de-Fourques), at the foot of the eastern rim of the Causse Méjean. There are eight circular huts built out of dry-stone walls and covered with tiles. The walls must have served as foundations intended to support a superstructure of wood and cob. Some huts contained balances used in the textile industry (weaving).
