Archaeologists near Paris have discovered a life-sized replica of the fortified city of Maastricht, European stronghold of the era! The site served as practice for the revolutionary siege strategy invented by the Marquis de Vauban, allowing the Sun King’s troops to conquer Maastricht in a lightning war and ensuring Louis XIV’s domination over Europe.
