Legal row over true site of Gauls' battle victory over Romans

France — Link

A government decree making a village location in central France a national heritage site on archeologists' advice that it was where the 25BC Battle of Gergovia was played out, when an army of Gauls defeated that of Roman emperor Julius Caesar, is being legally challenged by the Patrimoine-Environnement association which insists that the real battlefield was four kilometres away, at a spot soon to be covered in solar panels.
