Napoleon III erected a seven-meter-tall statue of Vercingétorix in 1865, created by the sculptor Aimé Millet, on the supposed site of Alesia. The architect for the memorial was Eugène Viollet-le-Duc.The impressive statue still stands. The inscription on the base, written by Viollet-le-Duc, copied by the famous statement of Julius Caesar, reads:
La Gaule unieFormant une seule nationAnimée d’un même esprit,Peut défier l’Univers.

This is a link to the The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnelle offered in the Camelot Project, University of Rochester.

I happened upon it and I really enjoyed the Introduction as well as the story itself. It took me awhile to get into the rhythm of the story so that I could understand what I was reading but after I did, I loved it. :)

I’ve long been fascinated by the Celtic tribes of the Iron Age, not least because of their awesome outfits.
