From 2009 to 2011, the CReA-Patrimoine of the ULB and the Cedarc/Musée du Malgré-Tout de Treignes carried out excavations at the place called "La Tonne de Bière" in Fagnolle. These have led to the discovery of a group of about thirty post holes as well as a large silt extraction pit. The filling of this pit underwent a progressive enrichment during the second half of the 4th century AD, forming a 'black earth' horizon. The micro-morphological study makes it possible to assimilate these 'black earths' to a vegetable garden, probably in relation to a habitat site that remains to be discovered. The abundant ceramic and monetary material from this area is very homogeneous.
