Morteau is a commune, in the Doubs department in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region in eastern France.GeographyThis little city is situated in a widening of the Doubs river valley.The proximity of Switzerland (11 km to Le Locle, 21 km to La Chaux-de-Fonds) gives jobs to trans-border workers, as well as providing clientele for the businesses of the Morteau valley.HistoryThe Roman expansion began the decline of the Celts. At the Battle of Alesia, at the side of Arvernes, there were an equal number of Mandubiens, the people of Doubs. They were the best riders of Vercingetorix.Early Middle AgesAt the end of the Roman Empire, the Alamanni invaded the region, followed by the Burgundians.The region was influenced by the Normans, the Hungarian descendants of the Huns, the Sarrasins. These Arabs stopped by Charles Martel in 732, had followed the valley of the river Saône. Locally, their name was given to the tiny village of Sarrazins above Montlebon.
