Description

In the first century BC, when Julius Caesar and his Legionnaires defeated the Celts in Gaul, the conquered land became Roman Provincia. Now known as Provence in the south of France, a Roman influence is still evident today.

The ancient Roman amphitheatres, with grandiose Roman spectacles, now see their modern counterpart, the bull festivals of Provence. A fascination for bulls is clearly existent in Arles and Nîmes, whilst the great Roman aqueducts, the Roman roads and bridges, all recall intriguing stories of the grandeur that was Rome

. The production of Roman wine is still carried on in Provence today.

We investigate the similarities and differences between Caesar’s Legionnaires in Provence who were foreign born in a foreign land and of that corps d'élite, the French Foreign Legion. Members of the Foreign Legion still receive their training

in Provence.
