The archaeological diagnosis carried out in January 2018 revealed the presence of an ancient sanctuary dated from the first century BC to the middle of the second century AD. Among the remains three statues of deities, including that of Epona. Goddess of travelers, horses and agricultural domains, the Gallic deity had watched over the site for more than 2,000 years. Fragments of the found statue are on display in the Musée du Donjon. A facsimile has been made and is presented on the first floor of the Dryer, as an introduction to the space "Epona - Secrets of our Heritage". From there, the goddess invites you to embark on a journey of discovery of the heritage of the Niort Agglo territory.
Designed and implemented by the Niort Agglo museum conservation department, the second floor of the Dryer is an immersive and fun space dedicated to the heritage that makes up the territory?s ident
