Mina and the Seal of Time (La Fenêtre Editions) is a graphic novel by Mariel Ortegosa, illustrated by Philip Archer. It immerses us in the history of science in Montpellier in a fun and colorful way. The reader can follow Mina’s initiative from her grandmother, Madou, to meet the great personalities who, for example, made the medical school famous. On all pages we meet Arnaud de Villeneuve, the astrologer Michel de Nostredame, better known as Nostradamus, François Rabelais, without forgetting, Pierre Richer de Belleval, who crossed in the Jardin des Plantes or the architect Henri Pitot who is about to open the Saint-Clément canal. The book is built around a mixture of text and illustrations, as well as comic strips, inserted to bring Mina into dialogue with the story.

A cycle of meetings on authors and specialists, proposed by the Herault Archives Department.
