History of Lausanne

(Already now this site exist in French) C'est de la fin de la dernière glaciation que les premières empreintes de l’activité humaine sont attestées par des haltes de chasseurs. Une population s’installa vers 5500 av. J.C. au bord du Lac Léman, on parle alors de la civilisation lacustre. Vers 45 av. J.C. toute la région est soumise à Rome qui lui donne le nom d’Helvétie romaine avec Avenches comme capitale.
