Saint-Sauflieu is a commune in the Somme department in Picardie in northern France.

Geography[edit]

The commune is situated 9 miles (14 km) south of Amiens, just off the N1 road. To the immediate west of the commune are the traces of the Chaussée Brunehaut, an ancient Roman road joining Caesaromagus (Beauvais) with Samarobriva (Amiens). More traces of Gallo-Roman construction have been found to the north of the village, by aerial observation.
