Neung's historic location is situated between two rivers, the Beuvron and the Tharonne. From the air, one can easily see the circular outline of the ancient Gallic and Roman oppidum.
Neung sur Beuvron is thought to be the Roman town of Noviodunum Biturigum, in which Vercingetorix and Julius Caesar fought in 52 BC. A few modest Roman remains still survive. A surviving Roman road runs from Neung to La Ferté-Beauharnais, crossing the forest under the name of "les chemins bas" (the low roads).
