TARBA 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.
