Gallia was created pursuant to the law no 90 of January 21, 1942 (Article 1), replaced by the decree no 45-2098 of September 13, 1945 (Article 8), and which entrusts the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) with “ensuring and overseeing the publication of research and results subsequent to archaeological excavations”. Since 1943, the journal has published issues inspired by and reviews of the most significant discoveries and research. Since 1946, the Gallia Supplements assemble monographic studies, important corpora (iconographic, epigraphic) of major interest or which represent significant progress for the archeology and history of Gaul.
The journal is supported by the Ministry of Culture (General Directorate of Cultural Heritage, sub-directorate of Archeology) and the Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (CNRS).
