The oppidum of Bibracte was 2000 years ago a political, a religious and an economic center of a vast area that is from the Saone river to the Allier one.

The oppidum was built on the site of the fortified town protected by a 7km long rampart and originally built by the Gallic tribe of the Eduens.

This is where in 52 BC Vercingetorix was proclaimed head of the Gallic coalition against Caesar.
Soon after the Roman conquest, the oppidum was abandoned in favor of a new city, Augustodunum (Autun).
