Caesar's Footprints: Journeys to Roman Gaul
"Terrific... bursting with anecdotes and fizzing with unexpected information..." - Boris Johnson
"Caesar’s Footprints is a compelling, richly researched account of a little understood chapter of European history, packed with insightful parallels between the world of Caesar and our own." - Justin Marozzi, author of The Way of Herodotus.
"Caesar’s Footprints tells the extraordinary story of how the seeds of a new Gallo-Roman civilisation were sown, grew and flourished in the ashes of the old. Very few writers have the ability to write interestingly as well as rigorously about the Roman world. Bijan Omrani – an extraordinarily talented scholar and writer – is one of them. Read this book." - Robert Twigger, author of Red Nile and Angry White Pyjamas.
"...a polymath who delights us with his learning – in literature, history and geography – but wears it lightly. His sense of time and place and true civilisation is extraordinary." - Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles KCMG LVO, author of Ever the Diplomat.
"...a bold vision, elegantly evocative, and an accomplished tribute to year zero of our shared modern European identity." - Dominic Selwood, author of Knights of the Cloister and Daily Telegraph columnist.
