Well-known archaeological site (Pointe-aux-Oies) which was already discovered in 1967.
The choppers from this site are generally made of quite large silex tubers that were found there.

They are associated with an early Homo Erectus and Wiméreux is probably the most Northern occurrence of this industry.
