History

Within the commune, on the ‘land of graves’, are said to rest the remains of those that died (9000+ ) at the Battle of Saucourt-en-Vimeu, where Louis III of France fought and defeated the Normans in 881. Other historians claim it is actually the site of the battle itself.[1]

Places of interest

  • The church, with parts dating from the twelfth century.
