Archaeologist Olivier Buchsenschutz is carrying out an investigation of the construction techniques of the houses of the Gauls, which were built out of pieces of wood attached to a number of poles driven into the ground. To understand the function and purpose of these structures, he looks for parallel elements in peasant loges, a kind of barn constructed along similar lines. The work of a German soldier who was also an archeologist, stationed in Anjou during World War Two, describing the construction of a loge, enabled him to reconstruct one for the exhibition at Moulins Céphons.
