Discovered in 1970 by a non-professional archaeologist, Gildas Bernier, Beg Er Vil was excavated by Olivier Kayser, for the first time, in the middle of the eighties. Every year since 2012, excavations have taken place, led by a CNRS team, and a University team from Rennes 1, under Gregor Marchand and Catherine Dupont's supervision.

This archaeological site was dated by the radiocarbone between 6 200 and 6 000 BC, during a period of Prehistory called the Mesolithic. At this time, Beg Er Vil was inhabited by a nomadic population of marine pickers and hunters.

Discover on the site what the searches(excavations) tell us of the life in the Mesolithic thanks to audio comments, panoramas of the site in period of searches(excavations) and videos.
