Transcript of Paris
The history of Paris goes back to about 2,000 years ago when 60 Celtic tribes called the Gauls inhabited the region, most notable in the Paris Basin on the lle de la Cite. One of their tribes, the Parisii, eventually gave their name to the present-day city. The Gauls were composed of warrior tribes who hunted, fished, and and lived in huts with thatched roofs. Their religion, called druidism, celebrated nature. Many present day religious festivals include remnants of druidic worship. The main festival, la fete du gui (mistletoe) welcomed in the new year. They also burned the Yule log to celebrate the return of light after a long dark season of winter. A Yule Log is a large log traditionally burned in the fireplace on Christmas Eve. Their chief warrior, vercitetorix, was defeated by the Roman army under Julius Ceasar in about 50 B.C. The Romans renamed the Gaulish capital Lutetia, which it remained until it was reconquered by a Germanic tribe called the Franks- hence the name for a present day France (land of the hanks). Their king, Clovis (465-511) converted to
and took the old name of Paris as the invader called Vikings ( actually Norseman) invaded and pillaged Paris until they eventually became a civilized part of the community.
