Despite a more established presence on the coasts, the first Armorican populations, the interior Brittany conceals nevertheless some traces of occupation, testifying of the antiquity of its population. The region of Guémené-sur-Scorff, is located, formerly, in the heart of this vast forest which covered almost the whole Center Bretagne. At the turn of its paths, furrowing woods and valleys, we discover today vestiges illustrating a human presence of the Neolithic in the Gallo-Roman era. It is, moreover, with the Roman conquest, that the heart of the country begins to be populated more densely. Numerous routes then criss-cross Armorique. One of them crosses the region of Guémené, going from Vannes to Carhaix. In the 6th and 7th centuries, Breton immigrants were born in primitive parishes. The first to concern the territory was that of Plousquen, now extinct. A village in the town of Persquen still bears this name. In the Xth century, displacements of population would be caused by the Norman invasions. A people of Aleth (now Saint Malo) would have chosen to settle on this new land, giving birth to the parish of Locmalo and more widely to the country Pourleth. It is within this parish and in an area surrounded by hills forming a horseshoe and defended by Scorff that the Lord Guégant chose to found his estate around 1050 Kemenet-Guégant, which will become much later Guémené-sur-Scorff
