Renowned archaeologist & medievalist, Marie Elise Gardel, is at the origin of an interesting study at Hautpoul, Mazamet. A recent canvassing campaign initiated by a combination of the economic development of the area and local business's at the site of Saint Sauveur à Hautpoul revealed the probable existence of a medieval"castrum". The review of research on the site in 2012/2013 provides clues to the presence of a fortified place of great interest. A profusion of shards and other remains have been updated and enthusiasm is high among specialists. To demonstrate this major discovery, Marie Elise Gardel held a conference at the convention centre for the benefit of insiders as well as amateurs or those curious of mazamétain history. The venture will continue with an exploratory campaign excavation made possible by a sponsorship. 3 MN (endowment), the "Patrons of Mazamétain and the Black Mountains" were able to gather a substantial amount resulting from private donations and from a local company. The check, presented last December at the AVPM, covers a large part of the costs of the two surveys carried out by Marie Elise Gardel. Juignet Michel, President of 3MN will speak on this topic at the conference.
