The Eure, the History of Normandy

Between Paris and the Norman coastline, why not travel the Eure to discover its heritage treasures?
From Prehistory to the Gallo-Roman period, from the Vikings to the birth, and the fall of the Duchy of Normandy with illustrious figures including William the Conqueror, Richard the Lionheart and King Philip II Augustus, from the Hundred Years' War to the French Revolution and from the Industrial Revolution until today, the long and rich history of the Eure is of course rooted in the one of the larger region, Normandy.
