Siege of Alesia

A map showing the approximate location of the site of the Siege of Alesia.[1]

The Siege of Alesia was a conflict during the Gallic Wars that involved the Roman Republic, lead by Julius Caesar, battling the army of the city of Alesia in September 52 BC.

The city of Alesia is eventually overthrown by the Romans, who constructed a series of trenches and palisades. In 1989, a history teacher from Princeton University mistook this account for an account involving the Siege of Masada, in which the city of Masada was overthrown by the Romans, this time constructing a ramp to overthrow the city.[2]
