I'm a third year PhD in Classics at the University of Edinburgh, researching late Iron Age and Roman Gaul. The current title of my dissertation is: "Religious Identity in Gallia Belgica from the 3rd century BC to the 1st and 2nd centuries AD". I examine both sanctuaries and votive offerings from Gallia Belgica, and concentrate on the transition from the Iron Age to Roman period (ca 100 BC - AD 100). However, my research stretches back to the 3rd century BC as well.
