I was wondering whether the drought has also revealed ancient structures in France as it did in Ireland (e.g. like https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-44801939).

I searched the net but couldn't find anything (maybe due to my limited knowledge of French).

  • That is quite likely. I read an article in a Dutch newspaper a couple of days ago about ancient structures now becoming visible in the landscape due to the drought. – Jos Aug 9 '18 at 10:52

    I haven't heard anything specific about discoveries in France, but the phenomenon of parch marks is not new, and I have no doubt that French archaeologists will also be making the most of the opportunity presented by the drought and carrying out aerial surveys to locate possible features in the landscape. – sempaiscuba Aug 9 '18 at 13:05

    A search on Google France hasn't turned up anything...except a report on UK finds! – Lars Bosteen Aug 9 '18 at 13:22
