The English danger not far from the coast

Three times a year, the museum presents in its permanent itinerary a selection of documents from the rich archive of the Historical Defense Service in Rochefort

The selected documents evoke "the case of the Brûlots of the island of Aix", this naval battle between British and French, which took place in April 1809 off the estuary of the Charente, in the Bay of Basques.
