C'est mon dernier je t'aime

Gaulish

Translation into Gaulish (French celtic), the language of the early bards. Its just an attempt to translate the poem, with the ogham writing. Note these french words whose origin is Gaulish: bercer, briser, changer, craindre, glaner, valet, vassal, talus, chemin , dune, quai, bruyère, chêne, if, sapin, alouette, bouc, lotte, mouton, bec, orteil, chemin, crème, tonneau! cf Claude Hagège. On the map you will see the Gaulish language point to the village of Gergovie, near the plateau of the same name, made famous by Vercingetorix.

The Celts settle in Gaul in -500. The conquest of Gaul by the Romans, which ends in -52, will be the beginning of the Romanization. The Gauls, composed of peoples of oral tradition, adopt the Roman way of life. Latin becomes the language of the elite. In 212, the edict of Caracalla making Gauls Roman citizens, sign the death sentence of their language, which will disappear completely in the 5th century, with the arrival of the Franks.

Ogham

Most of the inscriptions noted in ogham writing, were found in Great Britain, engraved on stone or wood. These are just brief funeral inscriptions with a magical character that should be for the use of druids. We can understand this alphabet which must date from the 3rd century, because, in Wales, it has been found doubled with latin letters. The consonants are represented by notches more or less numerous and on one side or both of the edge of a stone ... it is therefore the number and the location of these notches which designates them. For the vowels, the notches are much smaller and on the edge of the stone.
