Vestiges dating back to well before the foundation of the village have been found on the spot and throughout the region. At Sassey, the “Châtel” hill is thought to be an ancient Roman camp that commanded the Meuse river crossing. In Dun-sur-Meuse, the Gauls established an oppidum and the Romans a castrum. The forest of Mont was populated by Celtic druids attracted by the magnetism of the springs and it is known that a Roman sacellum (pagan oratory) occupied the site of the present church.
