Another Gallic village: Avançon
Eight kilometres west of Acy-Romance, the village of Avançon at "la Voie de Blanzy"
was established at the same time, but its position on a major road ensured that its occupation continued until the 3rd
The general layout is quite similar to Acy-Romance. The remains of horses have been found in an old grain pit, together with a deposit of unfired weaving weights, and a folded spear and some lead votive wheels, indications of undefined religious practices
From the end of the 1st
century BCE, metalworking developed as an activity
. This continued until the village was finally abandoned. The central ditch was used as a receptacle for waste from the forges.
