This is Barris! - What was Gaul?

What was Gaul?

Ah, the Gauls - proud fighters with spectacular mustaches and long feathers adorning their helmets. A people of great French heroes such as Vercingetorix, that rose against Roman oppression and created the first true French nation!

Or did he? At least, that's what I was told in French schools. Today, I discuss how Gaul has never even existed but is merely the creation of Romans, and especially, Gaius Julius Caesar.
