Biography [ edit ]
Jullian was born in
Marseille. Specialising in [1 ] Gaul and the Roman epoch, he was notably a student of the [1 ] École Normale Supérieure, member of the École française de Rome and professor of national antiquities at the Collège de France. His major work is a multi-volume history of Gaul.
He was involved with the controversy over the archaeological findings at Glozel in France; he was among those who believed the artefacts recovered were faked.
Jullian was elected member of the
Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres in 1908 and the Académie française in 1924. He was a member of the Legion of Honour. [1 ]
He died in
Paris in 1933. His daughter married a man of questionable background named Simounet, a war veteran who ended his life in poverty; their son, the author Philippe Jullian, took instead his grandfather's name. [2 ]
