Our temporary exhibition

The Gergoviotes, when archaeological students became Resistance fighters (1940-1951)

In people’s minds, the word “Gergovia” is associated with Antiquity and with an ancient battle. Yet, Gergovia also has a rich – though little known – contemporary history. During World War II, the Gergovia plateau served as a meeting place for a group of Alsatian students from the University of Strasbourg, which had been relocated in Clermont-Ferrand since the declaration of war. Many of these students, who participated in archaeological digs, became Resistance fighters. They called themselves “the Gergoviotes”. Our new temporary exhibition deals with their history. Come and discover their unique experience…

Exhibition scheduled to run until 15th September 2024.
