Bituriges CUBES (Area of ​​Bourges)

(Second - first century BC)

The territory of Bituriges Cubes extended over a portion of Bourbonnais, Touraine and Berry. Their capital was the oppidum Avaricum (Bourges). Loire separated Aedui and Carnutes. In 52 BC, they maintained that Vercingetorix pushed to practice the technique of scorched earth. And they destroyed more than twenty oppida but refused the same to their capital, Avaricum (Bourges). Caesar besieged the oppidum, defended by thirty thousand and ten thousand Bituriges allies. The city was taken and burned, only eight hundred soldiers were able to escape, while the garrison and the population was massacred.
