Becoming Roman: The Origins of Provincial Civilization in Gaulby Greg Woolf
Pub. Date: 05/28/2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book is a study of the process conventionally termed Romanization through an analysis of the experience of Roman rule over the Gallic provinces of the empire in the period 200 BC-AD 300. It examines how and why GalloRoman 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.
