The ascendancy of Luc was not to last long because in 69AD, during the political unrest throughout the Roman Empire following the death of Nero, the Voconces rebelled. A Roman Legion threatened to burn the town down and this was only avoided by the payment of a ransom. Half a century later Luc was further punished by the Romans when they deprived the town of its status as an administrative and religious capital by shifting these functions to Dea Augusta Vocontiorum Die , which was further fortified to become a fully-fledged Roman garrison by the 3 rd century AD.
Luc was never fortified but the Romans built a military observation post at the very top of the Pic de Luc, which overlooks the Drome Valley for 20 kilometres in each direction. During the long feudal period, the Haut Diois was ruled by a series of Counts that changed according to their fortunes or misfortunes in war and disputes with the Church.
The ruined fortifications at the villages of Pilhon, Beaumont, Montlaur and Montmaur date from this period. The most calamitous event during this period was the collapse in , of a large part of the Pic de Luc into the valley below, blocking the River Drome in two places to form two lakes that inundated the Via Vocontium.
For the next years the route from Luc up to the Col de Cabre, then down to the Durance Valley and on to Briancon and Italy was physically blocked and involved circuitous detours. Some people still believe that the catastrophic collapse of the Pic de Luc resulted in the destruction of Luc by floodwaters, necessitating the reconstruction of the town higher up. The story seems to have started with the historian Aymar de Rivail, who visited in and wrote about seeing the ruins of buildings emerging from the waters.
He must have been writing about buildings submerged by the Grand Lac, possibly near Beaumont, or possibly a village that has now been totally lost. The Roman ruins in the middle of Luc prove that the town has remained in the same place for at least years. In any case, the collapse actually blocked the river in two places above Luc, leading presumably to the river drying up at Luc until the newly formed lakes eventually overflowed some years later. The main road from Luc up to the Col de Cabre still winds its way between a chaotic pile of rocks bigger than houses that rest exactly where they fell over years ago.
The lakes so formed generated their own history. In the Grand Lac was acquired by the monks of Chartreux de Durban who turned it into a fishery, but they soon ran into conflict with the locals who poached fish to such an extent that the Parliament of Grenoble, and finally Louis XIV became involved. By the end of the 18 th century the lake had largely silted up and much of it had become a stagnant swamp. Elle les prend, tous les quatre.

Andreï Makine : Testament français ou Testament russe ?
The artwork by Tardi is amazing and the story is both funny and dark. Deliciosa lectura.
This book is Jacques Tardi's love letter to Dashiell Hammett. Clearly a positive nod to Hammett's, Thin Man series, The Bloody Streets of Paris is complete with a motley cast of characters all set within, surprise, the streets of Nazi occupied France. Tardi does a masterful job of differentiating the look and appearance of each character which can't be overlooked as the list of characters is impressive and varied.
As with most Tardi works, the backdrop of WW2 France is as important a character as is any other of the protagonists. Beautifully rendered, Tardis plunges the reader into the environment with wonderful skill. One can nearly smell the cigarettes, printers' ink, and cheap coffee. A slow burn in terms of plot and story reveals, it still manages to keep focused and doesn't meander too much, revealing just enough to maintain the reader's interest and not forcing any unnecessary details for plot pacing's sake.
Eventually, all is revealed at the conclusion as each character is invited to all things, a cocktail party, ala Dashiell Hammett's, Thin Man. Overall, a great noir tale, masterfully told by Jacques Tardi. Une histoire qui ne vous quitte plus. This is the 3rd time I've tried this comic and I always get totally bored in the middle.
