Program Description

Caesar in Gaul is a two-week seminar designed to enhance participants’ appreciation of Julius Caesar and the Bellum Gallicum. Developed specifically with the new AP curriculum in mind, the program includes lectures and seminars led by top scholars who are reshaping the field of Caesar studies today, as well as visits to key sites of the Gallic Wars and other important monuments of Gallo-Roman culture.
