Mazeley is a commune in the Vosges department in Grand Est in northeastern France.

Geography[edit]

The village lies at the confluence of three or four minor roads some 10 kilometres (6 mi) northwest of Épinal.

History[edit]

Several archaeological discoveries indicate that the area was occupied in Roman times. A section of paved roadway was unearthed in the local woods in 1861, followed in 1988 by the discovery of a Gallo-Roman road in the Chanot district. Also discovered in 1988 an old road visible over more than a kilometre in an area called Donzey Wood (Bois de Donzey) heading in the direction of Gigney [2]
