|08:58 am - Gaul. . . Always good!|
Ooh, ooh, ooh! I just got a copy of the book "Society and Culture in Late Antique Gaul" from the library.
I'm quite happy now, especially about the essay in there about feasting and fishes. . .

What sort of time frame is considered "late antique" in Gaul?
(I still want to read your Etruscan books, but just got in a few new ones on Greeks... )
so many time; so little books... erp.
In general, this is the end of the Roman period transitioning into the barbaric period. 4th to sixth century.
Fully Christianized, but still with interesting interaction involving Paganism.
Hehe. I thought you might be interested.
So far, it's pretty good. I'm planning on making a photocopy of an article or two from it. I'll make an extra one or two for you.
If only my Latin weren't so rusty, though. There's obviously some good stuff in it. . . but a good chunk of at least two papers in the book are in Latin.
Fishing and feasts, that's what life's all about.
Fish and get fat, I say!
A great song.
