Definition: Large area covering what is now France and more. Settled by Celts and others long before the Romans arrived on the scene. Barbarians in Gaul played both sides in the Second Punic war, alternately helping and harrassing Hannibal on his march over the Alps and into Italy. Romans under Julius Caesar conquered Gaul and followed the refugees to Britain.
