    The first sentence of the paragraph is describing the nature of the surrounding countryside of a plain in central France, using fancy terminology and descriptive language such as “buttressed by purplish mountains on the east, the rolling hill country of central France is both beautiful and strategic.” The author seems to be trying to set up something bigger, and I feel like something of a greater nature is going to come up. Judging by the way that it is worded and the implication of the word “strategic”, it seems that something of which requires tactics on this beautiful flatland is about to be made. Judging by the subtitle, which reads: “Caesar conquered Gaul, but awaiting him was the treacherous Brutus.”, it sounds like these two people -…

    At the beginning of his political ventures, he secured the command of the provinces of Cisalpine Gaul, Illyricum, and Transalpine Gaul (Betty Nye Quinn 584). His ambition is clearly portrayed as he conquers more land, bringing more people under his unyielding control. While running for the consulship, he was even given the right to stand, even though he was not in Rome (Betty Nye Quinn 585). This alone gives reason to the fear of the senate towards his unending ambition. While some of them…

    Welwyn burials originated from Italian vineyards from between 50-100 BCE. These dates adhere to the foundation of the trading relationship between the Trinovantes and Rome, allowing them to import luxury goods in return for British products due to a treaty dating back to Caesar 's invasion in 54/55 BC. A stable market of exports from the tribe would be required to sustain the scale of foreign products that have been unearthed in land occupied by the Trinovantes, including imported pottery,…

    In the Roman conquest of Gaul and Britannia, the Romans faced many Gallic and Briton tribes, most of which rebelling against their aggressive expansion in the north under the guise of claiming the tribes were barbaric savages. In Julius Caesars “The Gallic wars” he says tells of how “All Gaul is divided into three parts.”(Caesar, p.1) These three parts were inhabited by the native tribes of the Belgae in what we would now call Belgium, the Nervii and the Helvetii in what is now known as…

    Julius Caesar was ahead of his time utilizing most principles of mission command. Whether it was leading through the front or through letters to achieve various victories such as Gaul, Spain and the Roman Civil War, he exercised them before they would be conceived for almost another two-thousand years. Using numerous sources and writings from the Roman historian, Suetonius, we can conclude that he had all of what was mentioned, leading from the front and afar. It is shown that Julius Caesar has…

    Based on the descriptions by Caesar and Poseidonius, the Gauls share a few characteristics with the Scythians. Caesar describes the Gauls as warlike and also states that they have a fondness for wine and occasionally “offer, or vow to offer, human sacrifices” (141). Poseidonius describes a custom of the Gauls in which they “hang the heads of their enemies from the necks of their horses” and upon returning home nail the heads to their homes (247). All of these features match Herodotus’…
