Historical background

Briennois (brienno PAGUS and VICUS)

(Seventh - eighth century)

The Briennois is a French region around Brienne-le-Château in the Aube. Crossed by the Dawn, this micro-region under the wet Champagne is bounded on the southwest by the Regional Natural Park of the Orient forest and lakes and north-east by the forest of Soulaines. The area is known for its churches with wood sides. The site is probably already occupied by the Gauls and his name appears to be derived from the Celtic briavenna which is a set of pontoons in connection with the age of the port activity of Brienne-la-Vieille. His castle was destroyed by the Normans in 9511..
