Historical background

GALLIA - NEDENES (oppidum of Montlaures)

(2nd - 1st century BC)

This small people is neither cited by Ptolemy nor by Strabo any more than by Caesar. He must have belonged to the more general group of Longostaletes, in the region between Narbonne and Béziers. It is the recent excavations, carried out over the past thirty years, which have made it possible to restore to the oppida of Montlaurès and Ensérune the importance they had acquired between the creation of the province of Narbonnaise, in 118 BC. C., and the end of the Gallic Wars.
