History and Literature about Geese
One of the most interesting stories of early Roman history tells how sacred geese in the Temple of Juno saved the city. In 390 B.C., the Gauls, a fierce northern people attacked the Romans. The invaders drove the Romans to a steep rocky hill known as the Capitol, which was used as a fort. One night, the consul Manlius was awakened by the cackling of the sacred geese. Rushing to the wall, he saw that the Gauls had almost climbed it. His shouts and the noise of the geese woke the other Romans, and they defeated the Gauls.
