The city is first recorded in 58 BC as Vesontio in the Book I of Julius Caesar's Commentarii de Bello Gallico. The most common explanation is that the name is of Celtic origin, derived from wes, meaning 'mountain'.During the 4th century, the letter B took the place of the V, and the city name changed to Besontio or Bisontion and then underwent several transformations to become Besançon in 1243.The city sits within an oxbow of the Doubs River (a tributary of the Saône River); a mountain closes the fourth side.

En attribuant ce nud routier à un barbare pas trop puissant, Aetius économisait des garnisons en assurant la sécurité de vastes zones." Jusqu'à l'anéantissement de leur nouveau royaume, en 534, les Burgondes vont jouer le rôle attribué par Aetius: s'opposer aux Barbares venus du Rhin et protéger les cols. Une position intenable que les Burgondes ont toutefois tenue près d'un siècle.
Ainsi placés, les Burgondes pouvaient stopper une éventuelle progression des Alamans. Un royaume trop peu puissant pour menacer ses voisins, mais suffisamment important pour servir d'obstacle entre l'Italie, la Gaule franque et l'Alamania.The perfect souvenir from the museum’s shop, or for any visitor to the borough, this Tiny Folio features spectacular photography throughout, as well as a special selection of images highlighting Brooklyn’s rich artistic history.
