The Roman conquest of ancient Gaul led to transformation of its landscape and inhabitants. Focusing on ritual centers associated with water, we will examine the effects of the Roman presence on religion. Did the inhabitants of Gaul fully embrace Roman religion, or is there evidence for resistance?

Dr. Katherine M. Erdman (Department of Anthropology, University of Minnesota Twin Cities) will discuss recent archaeological research on this topic.
