LAUZE and SAINT-PROJET Tarn-et-Garonne, France.

At the W end of the military camp of Caylus, in the district of Cantayrac has been found a site thought by some to be that of Uxellodunum (see Luzech), which was besieged and taken by Caesar in 51 B.C. The evidence, however, seems to attest only an occupation in the 1st c. B.C. and during the Roman Empire.
