THE VALUE OF JULIUS CAESAR AS ETHNOGRAPHER

B.M. Bell

Abstract


Caesar's campaigns in Gaul, Germany and Britain occasioned great excitement in Rome.
For Catullus "the Gaulish Rhine, the formidable Britons, remotest of men" represented
"the memorials of great Caesar" (Cat. 11.10-11). Cicero too considered Caesar's exploits
against the Britons the stuff of poetry (Q Fr. 2.16.14). The reading public must have been
interested in what he had to say about his foreign adversaries.
