or TURBA (Tarbes) Hautes-Pyrénées, France.
The Gallo-Roman town, the civitas Turba or
Tarba of the Notitia Galliarum
, whose very existence
had been called into question, has gradually come to
light in the course of construction in Tarbes since 1960.
It seems to have been restricted to a fairly small settlement, located on sandbanks surrounded by many rivulets with shifting beds.
