Tumuli of Bougon

The tumuli of Bougon, also called the necropolis of Bougon (in French: tumulus de Bougon, nécropole de Bougon) is an archaeological site dating back to the Neolithic period formed by five burial mounds, located in the vicinity of La-Mothe-Saint-Héray, in the Poitou-Charentes region, France.

The discovery of the site in 1840 aroused great interest in the insides, and to protect the monuments, the site was acquired by the department of Deux-Sèvres in 1873. In the sixties of the twentieth-century excavation activities were resumed.

The oldest structures found in the complex date back to 4,800 BCE.
