In the context of a major project aimed at obtaining detailed star formation histories across the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) disk, we present here the first results for the outermost fields in the northern direction (see Fig 1, fields N3 to N5) We report the presence of a substantial intermediate-age (> 4.5 Gyr old and some ≈ 1.5 Gyr old stars) and old stellar population in these fields. It is striking that, at 9 Kpc from the LMC center, there is still galaxy with intermediate-age stars.
