The site of Cagny-l'Epinette excavated since 1980 showed fluvial deposits belonging to a late stage (MTIII) of the Somme basin Middle terrace, covered by sandy loams. According to the regional data, the Cagny-l'Epinette fluvial level is dated in the 4th glacial-interglacial cycle before the present (the last is the Weichselian and the Holocene). Results of palynology show in the fine fluvial deposits interstadial conditions with a landscape of boreal forest.
