La Graufesenque is the name of an archaeological site located in southern France at the point of the confluence of the Tarn and Dourbie rivers. The archaeological site is across the river valley from Millau, known in antiquity at Condatomagus. The site was famous for its large-scale production of high quality red terra sigillata pottery. This was produced in enormous quantities and exported across the western Roman world. Production of this type began in the reign of Augustus.
