Abstracts

Locmarinquer (56) is situated on the south east end of a peninsu1e which closes westward the only access possible by the sea to the bay of Morbihan. Near Vannes (Darioretum) this commune belongs to the “Cité des Vénètes”. It spreads from the river of Auray eastward to the bay of Quiberon westward and southward. Owing to this remarkable geographic situation, it plays an important part all along the atlantic littoral. This region was deeply altered due to climatic variations with multiple effects. Because of the ebb and flow, the coastline has considerably fluctuated. It strongly influenced the settling of the first populations in this part of brittany.
