Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says (Bibracte and Julius Caesar)

The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is ‘The Sign Says’

This is a hill  (Mont Beuvray) in the national park Morvan.
On top of the hill are the remains of the former Roman settlement Bibracte.
The Romans, led by Julius Caesar, defeated the Gauls near here.
Here Caesar finished his book about his wars in Gaul: De bello Gallico.
The hill offered a beautiful view on the surrounding country.
It was however strange to link this place to a fact I knew from school!
The two pictures show a plaque that mentions the founding of the settlement and a layout of the settlement.

The former French president Francois Mitterand wanted to be buried here. That did not happen.
