A permanent archeological excavation
Bibracte is a unique place to study the modalities of the first contacts between the Gauls and the Romans. In an extraordinary forest setting, an ancient town (houses, fortification, public buildings, monumental gates, etc.) is being brought to light year after year under the trowel of archaeologists. It testifies the growing influence of Romanization.
