    History as seen by the great historians, Catharism and the Inquisition are presented on parchment-shaped picture rails. There's plenty of pictorial documentation and temporary historical reference points. The Cathar period is explored through the findings of excavations carried out several decades earlier and a large-scale model. An exhibition evokes the life of the inhabitants, with everyday objects (tools) and the market economy (coins), food and local produce. Montaillou is a village made famous by Professor E. LEROY's best-selling book LA DURIE, one of the best-selling history books in the world.
