Bibracte was in the first century BC the former capital of the Aedui, Gallic people who occupied a territory between Saône and Allier. Abandoned towards the change of era, the Gallic city occupies one of the highest peaks of the Morvan, Mount Beuvray. Bibracte was rediscovered and intensively excavated in the second half of the 19th century. It has become one of the main reference sites of Celtic archaeology. Bibracte is also an emblematic historic site, where several major episodes of the Gallic War took place. Since 1985 the site has been the subject of an ambitious international archaeological research programme, which is managed by a public institution BIBRACTE EPCC.
