    Bibracte: A site of great archaeological and natural interest. Lying atop Mount Beuvray and ensconced in 1,000 ha of forestland, a large Gaul settlement was uncovered by researchers here. Surrounded by rampart fortifications, Bibracte was the capital of one of Gaul's most powerful tribes, the Eduens. Today listed in the Registry of Historical Monuments and Sites, Bibracte is the theatre each year of a number of archaeological digs that attract researchers from across Europe. These projects typically run from June through October. Many workshops are organised and held on an annual basis: coin-stamping, production of the antique "fibule" (pin or spindle used during the times of Gaul), a reconstitution of Gaul jars...

Bibracte also entails a visit to the Museum of Celtic Civilisation and its high-quality series of temporary exhibits, the European Archaeological Centre, along with a complete schedule of events, featuring an outdoor evening programme…
