France was once known as Gaul and was colonized by the Gauls, an Indo-European Celtic people. The civilizations of La Téne and Vix were headed by Gaulish Celts. The Greeks (Ionians) settled in southern Gaul, establishing towns such as Massalia (Marseilles) and Agde, among others (8th-6th century BC). In 51 B.C., Gaius Julius Caesar destroyed the Gallic leader Vercingetorix, establishing a link between Rome and the Germanic peoples who constantly troubled Rome with their migrations. Then came a genocide that substantially decreased the Gallic population, facilitating not only the quick Latinization, but also the work that the first Christian missionaries began not long after, spreading throughout the Roman Empire’s borders. As a result, much of Celtic Gaul became Latin and Christian.
