Ground finds in the South of France

Article about: I first went to the South of France in April 2003. This area has not been picked over by collectors like Normandy or Arnhem. These were all surface finds discovered just by walking the area.

    Hi James, the museum has limited opening times. Weekends are best. But go to the tourist office. Sometimes they will open it up for you.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yeah, we did try the office de tourism, and they did say that they would usually open, but there is a liberation anniversary fair this friday and the people from the museum where fixed in preparation. Going to return either tomorrow or wednesday. Did, however, visit the American war memorial, was absolutely overwhelming and beautiful.

    Will keep you posted on our progress.


    Thanks,


    James
