Parcours archéologique sur les pas de César

Martigues - Site

Cet itinéraire touristique et culturel part du centre ville, se poursuit en périphérie pour atteindre la Côte Bleue, en passant par les plaines agricoles de St Pierre et St Julien les Martigues. Autant de sites antiques que le visiteur peut découvrir au coeur même de la " Venise Provençale " ou dans des espaces naturels préservés !

La galerie de l'Histoire, présente deux espaces respectivement dédiés à l'histoire de Martigues, de la préhistoire au XIXe siècle, et à celle du XXe siècle aux chantiers de demain. Un cheminement entre une carte géante du territoire au sol et une frise chronologique verticale décrit l'histoire de la ville depuis -11 000 av. JC jusqu'à la fin du XIXe au travers de vitrines d'objets, films, photos, maquettes (quartier Ferrières)

Le mobilier archéologique exposé au musée Félix Ziem est issu des fouilles menées sur le territoire communal durant la seconde moitié du XXe siècle. Il permet d'appréhender les grandes étapes d'occupation du site, allant de la préhistoire à l'époque moderne, soit environ de 8 000 avant JC jusqu'au XVIIe s. - quartier Ferrières –

La vitrine archéologique située sur la place Maritima – quartier de l'Ile – est, sur 80m², une restitution in situ, sur les restes d'un village primitif gaulois : tracé des rues avec les objets là où ils ont été trouvés, et quatre maisons reconstruites selon des données archéologiques et ethniques.
