The 6,000 objects from the Paleolithic era, found in 1951 on the edge of the rock shelter of Grainfolet, show that men have lived on this shore forever.

A Welsh prince, called Suliau (later Suliac), landed in Britain in 560. He contributed to the evangelization of the region and built a monastery on Mount Barrow where he died in 606. In that distant time remaining few carved stones recovered from the ruins of the old monastery and now incorporated into the apparatus of some houses.
