The Roman reinvention of Gaul
Julius Caesar's bloody conquests in Gaul in the 50s BC forever transformed the ancient Celtic culture of that country. After Caesar, the Gauls exchanged their tribal quarrels for Roman values and acquired the paraphernalia of civilized urban life. The Romans also left behind a legacy of language, literature, law, government, religion, architecture, and industry.
Each chapter of Caesar's Footprints is dedicated to a specific journey of exploration through Roman Gaul. From the amphitheaters of Arles to the battlefield of Châlons, Bijan Omrani―an exciting new voice in Roman history―explores archaeological sites, artifacts, and landscapes to reveal how the imprint of Roman culture shaped Celtic France and helped to create modern Europe.
