    What was once the Roman Forum of Durocortorum (Roman Reims), remained a square full of commercial activity to the present day. Below ground level at the centre of the square is an archaeological site, le Cryptoportique Gallo-Romain, consisting of a 3rd century AD arched gallery that served as a granary during Gallo-Roman times. It is one of a few vestiges remaining from the Gallo-Roman period. The Cryptoportique is open to the public, but only in summer months, and has a small exhibit of objects found on site. Unfortunately, when I visited in November 2010, it was closed for the season.
