Hi all, I'm hoping for some rather particular expertise!
I am heading to Normandy on Monday to seek out a couple of archaeological sites that should still have some visible earthworks remaining: that of the Motte d'Olivet in Grimbosq Forest and at Bretteville-sur-Laize.
I am trying to figure out how accessible the Grimbosq Forest is and, further, where precisely the Motte d'Olivet is within it. My French is not great, so translating websites on my own is not going so well. It seems like the Forest is somewhat of a recreational area but I've been unable to figure out how to reach both it and the Motte within.
Second, it appears that the motte of Bretteville-sur-Laize is just north of Gouvix off of the D132, but I'm having trouble sorting out where exactly between my hand-drawn excavation maps and Google Earth.
I will have a car (and a friend who speaks native French) if this is helpful to anyone giving advice. Does anyone have any helpful hints? I'm throwing this onto our collective expertise. Thanks in advance!
