The 19th century made them the "Gauls ancestors" but the daily life of these men of Antiquity is just beginning to reveal itself.

They were the heirs of the powerful Celtic civilization, extended to the borders of Asia Minor. At the dawn of our era, their journey came face to face with Julius Caesar. From this famous "War of the Gauls" a new world was born, a brilliant synthesis: the Gallo-Roman culture.

Thanks to a meticulous, scrupulously documented reconstruction, this exceptional work offers you to discover in pictures the daily life of a nobleman and all his family at the end of the Iron Age.
