 Gallo-Roman culture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Roman life, centered on the public events and cultural responsibilities of urban life in the res publica and the sometimes luxurious life of the self-sufficient rural villa system, took longer to collapse in the Gallo-Roman regions, where the Visigoths largely inherited the status quo in the early 5th century.
The term Gallo-Roman describes the Romanized culture of Gaul under the rule of the Roman Empire, particularly the areas of Gallia Narbonensis that developed into Occitania, and to a lesser degree, Aquitania.
Lyon, the capital of Roman Gaul, is now the site of a Museum of Gallo-Roman Civilization (rue Céberg), associated with the remains of the theater and odeon of Roman Lugdunum.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 1999.02.09
For W., the prevailing discourse of romanization is a simplistic and simplifying byproduct of the nineteenth-century imperial experience, and he deftly exposes the notion of Gallo-Roman cultural resistance as a misplaced critique that merely helps entrench the idea of romanization as an imperialist process.
Becoming Roman is the culmination of a long series of articles on related topics that the author has published since the first year of this decade, and fulfills all the promise of the best of these.
In this context, becoming Roman did not mean adopting in whole or in part a single readymade Roman culture, but rather gaining the cultural competence necessary to take part in the process of deciding what that Roman culture actually was.

 Patrician Roman - DBA 81
Merrill's thesis is that the "barbarization" of the Roman army was the principal cause of Rome's downfall.
The Patrician Roman list covers the period from the rise of the general Aetius in 425 AD until the Ostrogoths destroyed Odavacer's Roman army and established their own Kingdom in Italy in 493 AD.
A fortified villa, a hasty march camp, a pallisaded rampart, a section of city wall, or even a barbarian wagon laager could be appropriate subjects for a Patrician Roman DBA camp.

 Research Unit Provincial-Roman Archaeology
The settlement was not only a focus for the romanisation of the area, but the site is also an excellent place to study the processes of decline of rural areas (4th and 5th century occupation) and the gradual germanisation and christianisation of the land (merovingian settlement and cemetery; early christian graveyard and church).
The aim of this new project, mainly to be executed between 1997 and 1999, is to reconstruct and interpret the Roman road system and land organisation in the former administrative unit of the Civitas Menapiorum, an area that comprises parts of western Belgium, northern France and the south-western Netherlands.
Although iron age and first century Roman pottery is present on the site, the majority of the finds (terra sigillata, colour coated pottery and local hand-made ware) date the main activity on this part of the site in the late second century.
