(2) In 52 BC, Vercingetorix, recently crowned King of the Gauls, has retreated and taken refuge at the oppidum (hill fort) of Alesia. His loss to Julius Caesar at the epic Battle of Alesia marked the conclusion of the Roman conquest of Gaul, a major turning point in the history of Europe.

(1) The death of a chief on the Pacific island of Pohnpei near the megalithic temple of Nan Madol prompts a big funeral.  After a lifetime of humility, the whole village honors the deceased and his contribution with a feast of the best pigs, yams and sakau.  (2) In 2004, a boat covered by thick sediment emerged from the bottom of the Rhone River.  Rapidly ranked a French national treasure, this still-laden big barge, one of the best ever preserved from Roman times, is the subject of a highly important archaeological project.
