VII Si?cle Avant J.C.

— Beziers decouvre son acte de naissance. —

Durant plusieurs si?cles, les alluvions abandonn?es par l'Orb dans ses d?bordements avaient pu laire oublier que site commandait le gu? qu'utiliserent les population migrantes et les troupes en armes carthaginoises ou romaines. En 1856, les arch?ologues de XIX eme si?cle mettant a profit l'ouverture du chantier du pont-canal, pouvaient alors estimer la datation du premier habitat organis? qui allait donner naissance ? Beziers, il y a 27 si?cles. Ils venaient de mettre ? jour le squelette d'un guerrier tenant dans chaque main une hache de type "celuque" (VII eme si?cle avant J.C.). Mais ce premier habitat ne pourra fixer d?finitivement sur cette berge la future agglom?ration biterroise. Car il faudra se pr?occuper de mettre les populations ? l'abri du fleuve, au r?gime torrentiel et des tribus ou des troupes arm?es franchissant le cours d'eau. Alors, portant plus haut leur regard, vers la colline toute proche, les nouveaux habitants edifieront un "oppidum", face ? celui d'Ens?rune. Et parce que sa situation privil?gi?e lui permettra de surveiller le passage du fleuve, tout en observant la basse plaine de l'Orb, l'oppidum cehib?rien "Baeterra" affirmera sa pr?dominance sur ce vaste territoire qui s'?tend du fleuve Aude jusqu'? l'Etang de Thau, et des Monts du Caroux jusqu'? la Mediterran?e. Les premieres habitations du gu? feront alors fonction d' d' avant-port de B?ziers, mettant la ville en communication fluviale avec la M?diterran?e.Orb, Canal du Midi et M?diterran?e se sont ici rencontr : voil? une trilogie qui a valeur de symbole pour les Biterrois

Here Beziers Was BornSeven centuries before ChristBeziers discovers his birth.For several centuries, the alluvium deposited by the Orb [River] [covered] the site that commanded ford site utilized by the migrant population and the armed troops of Carthaginian and Roman. In 1856, XIXth century archaeologists, profiting from the start of construction of the canal bridge, could then estimate the dating of the first organized settlement that would give birth to Beziers, 27 centuries ago. They [uncovered] the skeleton of a warrior holding in each hand a "celuque" type ax (VIIth century BC). But this first habitat will permanently fix this bank's future urban B?ziers. Because it will worry about putting people away from the river, and the torrential tribes armed troops crossing the river. So, with their highest regard towards the nearby hill, new people will build a "oppidum" facing the Ens?rune. And because its location allows them to monitor the passage of the river, while observing the low plain of the Orb, the oppidum cehib?rien "Baeterra" assert its dominance over this vast territory extending from the river Aude up Etang de Thau, and Caroux Mountains to the Mediterranean. The earliest houses ford will then function as a B?ziers outport, putting the city in communication with the Mediterranean.Orb, Canal du Midi and the Mediterranean have met here: this is a trilogy that has symbolic value for Biterrois
