About Quimper

Quimper is the Breton name of the town; its Gallo-Roman name was Civitas Aquilonia or Corisopitum. The Latin phrase civitas, which in post-Roman times became civitas (city), was an administrative district under Roman rule, and a municipium in late antiquity. It is sometimes called Civitas Ausciorum after the ancient tribe who lived here before being assimilated by the Breton invaders and inhabitants.[1] History [ edit ] The earliest traces of human settlement date back to 800 BC,[2] when there were still forested areas due to climate change caused by post glacial warming.[3][4] There are traces of Roman occupation including a wall built in early Christian times[5][6], while other sources believe that Quimper has been occupied since prehistoric times.[7][8] In 56 BC, Julius Caesar's forces fought against an alliance consisting mostly of Veneti tribes at Battle of Vouillé near Quimper.
