Finally after a long, long, long break, HoFiE is back. We pick up where we left off - with a look at Caesar's Gaul and his relationship with a druid of some note. We also have a Cocktail Party Slapdown looking at a French calvary charge that captures a Dutch fleet. Yeah, you read that right.

Episode 38 is an overview of Gaul as the Gauls were before and after Roman rule. We look at how they dressed and looked, their art and culture and the impact of Rome on the Gauls and on the Romans as a result of the Gauls.

And of course, we have a Cocktail Party Slapdown with a shoutout to Zack Twalmey because hey, we're covering a battle from the 30 Years War. The Battle of Lens was the last major battle in the war. France won, of course.

This week we wrap up the war in Gaul between the Romans and the Gauls and Caesar and Vercingetorix... sadly. The Battle of Alesia puts an end to the Gallic hopes for freedom, but it does mean better trade relations! Also we look at a sad story that spells the end of a village during the Second World War.

Caesar meets Vercingetorix and has a nasty time of it, almost getting chased out of Gaul. Meanwhile in Cocktail Party Slapdown, the French take St. John's thanks to some good planning on their part and bad planning on the British side. And St. John's and Newfoundland are awesome!

This week, we return to the chronological story of the history of France as Gaul meets Caesar. Of course can't get enough of Gaul and so takes pretty much all of it.

We also see Charles 'The Hammer' Martel stop the Muslim expansion in Europe at the battle of Poitiers. He's very sneaky.
