Saulge through the years

Juille and the Motte Charron

Prehistory and the Middle Ages.

During the final 10 years of the XX Century, archeological studies found that the site had been occupied during the Neolithic period. Study of the ground lead to the discovery of different levels of earth and ditches which could have been a defensive site occupied prehistory and which was then built on again during the Middle Ages (XII and XV Centuries). Verbal tradition talks of a "castle" in this isolated area. The feudal site is mentioned for the first time in a purchase agreement by Joseph Babert of Juille and the Motte de Charron, according him all the "noble and honorary rights" attached to the castle. Babert of Juille thus became a nobleman.
