Description

At Rougemont a sequence of periods of masonry is distinguishable. The Roman wall of purple volcanic stone was heightened here with quite different masonry of white sandstone, whose parapet underlies the Norman castle. Since the castle was built at the beginning of the Norman period, the white sandstone masonry must be later than the Roman period but earlier than the Norman.
