I was born a very long time ago, as evidenced by these Gallo-Roman pieces on display here.
You should have seen the atmosphere in Thérouanne, or rather Tervanna, back in those days! Look at this pottery, these vases… The town was a strong trading place, you could find everything.
Here, I remember very well this perfume vial, there, in the window. And aren’t these plates magnificent? But take a look at this model of a Gallo-Roman house, you’ll understand better how people lived back then.
It’s such a good place to live in Thérouanne that religious people made no mistake about it, they quickly moved here.
What a pity you didn’t see the cathedral! A magnificent Gothic monument that stood at the entrance to the city. Not to mention the episcopal palace, the bishops’ residence… Great personalities passed through here in the Middle Ages!
And every day, you’d come across groups of pilgrims passing through Thérouanne. Life was pleasant, with merchants and craftsmen: just look at this thimble and this draper’s lead!
