Caesar on the Germans // Roman Primary Source (58-49 BC)
Published on Aug 8, 2021
This is an extract from Julius Caesar's 'Commentaries on the Gallic Wars', first published between 58 and 49 BC.
In 60 BC Rome was not yet an empire, but soon it would be. The momentous events of the next decades, many of which were put into motion by the famed politician Julius Caesar, were some of the most important and formative of the Western World. We tell this story directly from the words of Caesar himself. Starting with his masterpiece ‘Commentaries on the Gallic Wars’ - first published over two thousand years ago yet still widely read all over the world today.
