François Rever

Date 1753 - 1828
Biographical NotesClergymen, teacher, and archeologist. Trained as a priest, but during the Revolution had a brief and unsuccessful spell in politics. He returned to his homeland in 1793, and became the main figure in the setting up of the 'Ecole centrale de l'Eure', where he was chief librarian, member of the educational board, and director of the 'pensionnat'. When the school, despite its success, was closed - alongside all other 'écoles normales' - he turned towards archeology.
