About the Authors
  • This book studies the processes conventionally termed "Romanization" through an analysis of the experience of Roman rule over the Gallic province of the empire in the period 200 BC-AD 300. It examines how and why Gallo-Roman civilization emerged from the confrontation between the iron-age cultures of Gaul and the civilization we call classical. It develops an original synthesis and argument that will form a bridge between the disciplines of classics and archaeology and will be of interest to all students of cultural change.

    • Draws on both literary and archaeological material
    • Includes original views on acculturation
    • Relevant to the study of Romanization in all areas, not only Gaul

    "It is a essential read for those scholars interested in the cultural change undergone by the provincials of first-century Gaul." J. Kent Gregory, Religious Studies Review
