The City of Lights

by Jimmy Smith

A closer look at Paris.


History
The earliest known occupation of what is now Paris was around 4200 B.C. by the Celtic Simons. The Celtics flourished until they were conquered by roman forces in 52 B.C. When the Romans took over they named the city Lutetina. While under roman rule the city began to grow rapidly and in the year 212 the city was renamed Paris. In the early fourth century the city was attacked by barbarians forcing the Romans to build a wall to protect the city. In 1789 the city was Paris was part of the French Revolution where the monarch was overthrown by the Russians.

Long time no talk. How have you been. I have been so busy, but I am now on spring break so hopefully I can get caught up on reading and writing.

Hey Lauren,

I am good and also extremely busy. I've had a lot on my plate lately too. Hoping to get a little break here soon to do some writing. I am glad to hear that you are getting one.
