The siege of Alesia and the museum

Recounted by Caesar in his Commentary on the Gallic War, the defeat of the Gallic armies at the hands of the Roman legions remains one of the founding moments of the French historical novel. Since then, the battle has been instrumentalized, fantasized and disputed, and has been the subject of much controversy - a textbook case. Far from the polemics, the MuséoParc d’Alise, endorsed by scientific research, allows visitors to relive the siege and the fighting. Vercingetorix, the magnificent loser.
