The silver treasure from Berthouville, one of the jewels of the Department of Coins, Medals and Antiques, was restored during four years by the Getty Museum (Los Angeles). It was presented several times in the United States before the exhibition that will take place in Arles, from June the 30th, 2017. Focusing on this treasure discovered in Normandy in 1830, the exhibition presents some outstanding pieces of Roman and Gallo-roman plates, namely 128 pieces from the BnF collections.
