A Mesolithic site that recalls the presence of the man from 7000 to 1200 BC can say that this land has been occupied since the earliest times.
1st century BC to 9th century AD, another remarkable site reflects the times Gallic, Gallo-Roman and Merovingian, the presence of pottery and mosaics.
The name of Attray is not clearly defined. We think it could come from "estreper" or "strop", meaning "clear".
Through a partnership with residents, the municipality and the Association Sports Entertainment Culture Attray (SLCA), which is behind the project, residents of the town are called officially since July 14, 2009, Attrayens and Attrayennes.
