On the ground floor of the royal dwellings, objects from the archaeological excavations of the site are displayed. A carved capital, a relief of Saint George slaying the dragon, a Plantagenet playing dice, etc., are all elements that evoke daily life in the Middle Ages.
A small overview of the collections :
This small bearded face from the end of the 12th century must have belonged to a biblical character, king or prophet. Of a very high quality of execution, it appeared on a capital decoration or bas-relief in limestone. It was found during the archaeological excavations of the old Saint-Georges chapel, in 2005.
During the archaeological excavations carried out on Fort Saint-Georges, in 2006, the tomb of a Gallic warrior aristocrat was discovered. He was buried in front of his home. Several objects were found in his grave, like this ceramic "baluster" vase that had been placed against his head.
