Alix and the Helvetians

On the occasion of the new album of Alix and the Helvetians, Les Helvètes, the archaeological site and the Roman museum in Avenches show a series of original slides from previous albums. Les Helvètes is the 38th volume of the Alix series, created by Jacques Martin (1921-2010) in 1948. The Romans commissioned Alix on a peace mission on the territory of the warlike Helvetians. However, it was not made easy for Alix and the Romans. The album is almost a documentary addition to what would later become Switzerland. The exhibition and the museum give an overview of this history and (local) archaeology.
