A site that explores the history of Paris (or Lutetia, as the Romans called it) by following the traces of its early inhabitants and various archaeological remnants. The site focuses principally on the Roman phase of the city's history (which began in 52 B.C.) but also includes information on the earliest settlements in the area. The site provides a wonderful explanation of the role geography played in the city's founding and expansion.
