4 Gallo-Roman times
2nd century BC. A Gallic tribe, known as the Aedui, came to settle in Bibracte (Saône-et-Loire). They chose a strategic location to build one of the biggest fortified enclosures of the time.
But despite the fortifications, Bibracte was overcome during the invasion of the Roman army and then was soon forgotten.
The Celtic capital has now been brought back to life and transformed into a museum and archaeological excavations, two unmissable places to visit!
