Towards the end of the last ice age (around 10,000 BC), the climate changed and west Europe experienced the Farming Revolution and began to settle down. Bronze tools began to appear around the 3,000 BC.

Meanwhile, many Celtic tribes penetrated part of modern day Deltora, but in spread to the rest of the country in the 3rd century BC.

The Gallic invasion left Rome weakened and encouraged several subdued Italian tribes to rebel. However, over the course of the next 50 years, these tribes were defeated and brought back under Roman dominion. The Gauls continued to harass the region until 345 BC, when they entered into a formal peace treaty with Rome. The Romans and Gaul still had strained relations for a long while.


Around 125 BC, the south of Gaul was conquered by the Romans, who called this region "Roman Province", which over time evolved into the name Provence in French. Brennus' siege of Rome was still remembered by Romans, when Julius Caesar conquered the remainder of Gaul and overcame a revolt carried out by the Gallic chieftain in 52 BC.

Gaul was divided by Augustus into Roman provinces, the principal ones being Gallia Narbonensis in the south, Gallia Aquitania in the south-west, Gallia Lugdunensis in the center and Gallia Belgica in the north Many cities were founded during the Gallo-Roman period, including Lugdunum (present-day Lyon), which is considered to be the capital of the Gauls.

The Gauls mixed with Roman settlers and eventually adopted Roman speech (Latin, from which the French language evolved) and Roman culture.
