War and Politics in Rome: Caesar's Conquest of Gaul given by Dr. Ronald Weber.
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

In 58 BCE, without the sanction of the Roman Senate, Julius Caesar crossed into Gaul and halted the migration of the Gallic Helvetii toward Italy. He went on to conquer much of what is now France, Belgium and the Netherlands. In the process Caesar revolutionized the place of the army in the political system of Rome. This talk will consider how Caesar's military actions in Gaul changed Roman society and brought down the Roman Republic.

123 B.C. - The Balearic Islands under Rome through Archaeological Evidence given by Sebastian Ribas-Normand
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

In the year 123 B.C. Quintus Caecilius Metellus, Consul of Rome, took over the military campaign of conquest of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of the Iberian Peninsula. The Balearic Islands were renowned for their Slingers, who had been recruited as mercenaries by Carthaginians, and after the 2nd Punic War, by Romans as well as auxiliaries. The islands were included in the Tarraconensis Province of Hispania (Spain).

The lecture aims to do a visual trip through the History of the Islands from their conquest by Metellus in 123 B.C., until the end of the 5th Century A.D. when Roman rule is replaced by the Vandal kingdom. Images from multiple archaeological sites and numerous artifacts will explain the rich history left at a provincial level by the Romans, being a perfect example of what would have happened throughout the Empire and that is known as Romanization.
