North of Paris

MSH (Maison des Sciences de l'Homme) is located in Seine Saint Denis, a district created in 1968. If the department of Seine-Saint-Denis is very recent, the territory has always been occupied by man, especially in the Gallo-Roman and medieval times.

During the Middle Ages, the Seine-Saint-Denis is both an economic center with the fair Lendit and spiritual with the abbey of Saint-Denis. According to the historian Anne Lombard-Jourdan, these two peculiarities have their origin in Gaulish and Gallo-Roman antiquity with the presence in full Lendit of a gathering place of the Gallic peoples, on the tin road, at the limit of Belgium and Celtic Gauls.

During your stay, don't miss the Basilica of Saint-Denis which is a large medieval abbey church in the city of Saint-Denis.

Nowadays, the Seine-Saint-Denis department hosts more than 10 data centers. A year ago, Amazon opened a new region in Paris region. Is your data physically in Seine-Saint-Denis?

City of Paris

∎ The Web site for visiting the city of Paris will suggest many opportunities for shopping, eating, exploring the beautiful sightseeings. On November, France and Paris city celebrate the armistice that brought an end to the First World War. During your stay, you can move to Ch√Ęteau de Vincennes for the exhibition of public presentation of the original convention of armistice, signed by France, England and Germany. The copy is unique because the version brought back to Germany has disappeared. Even if a century separates us from this event, are we certain that History can not be repeated? Have we understood the mistakes of the past? One hundred years ago, those who came back from the great war said: never again.
