Battle of Alesia[edit]

The siege of Alesia was the last major battle between the Gauls under Vercingetorix and the Romans under Julius Caesar, but the location of the historical city of Alesia remains under dispute; the generally accepted location is in Alise-Sainte-Reine, but Danielle Porte, a professor at the Sorbonne, has argued for the alternative theory that a site in Chaux-des-Crotenay better fits the historical description.
