The origin of Arcenant is distant: in prehistoric times, men were punctually in this vast area to hunt bison and horse. Several thousand years after they become established and founded the first villages.

In Gallo-Roman, a rural site sits near the old railway Neolithic through the top of the Hautes-Cotes: the Ecartelot, excavated since 1988, housed a sanctuary, hunters, artisans, farmers and farmers. Later, the Merovingian huge influence these areas: Many mounds remain.

Nestled between woods and vineyards, Arcenant also had the distinction of hosting small red fruits: the Well Currant bears its name, ready to Donna (source) and Trou du Duc: the Dukes of Burgundy had a hunting lodge here. Besides many legends, among fairies, witches and St. Maarten!

On 15 June 1944, the Maquis of Arcenant managed to oppose the enemy attack by resisting bravely.

Formerly well known as the capital of red fruits, liqueur are located in this village. Winemakers also work the land of the village.
