    but sadly there are no true Gauls
    I'd say there would be people who are as much "true Gauls" as there are "true Germans", as in the descendants of the ancient Germanic tribes.

    that is true but there spirit must live through us
    In order to build Odinism into a valid and inspiring religious expression we must overcome this tendency to trivialise divinity. The gods are not Vikings…they are spiritual beings, potent forces of numinous power"

    First off, this thread should have been put elsewhere because the Gauls were not Germanic. Secondly, the Gauls did not belong to a distinct or seperate race. The Gallic racial-makeup would have consisted of Nordic, Alpine and Dinaric elements. I'm willing to bet that many modern Central Europeans and French resemble them in this way. And also they would not have been "bred out".

    The Romans did not perform some systematic ethnic cleansing... Sure many Gauls were killed when the Romans invaded but they did not go out of their way to slaughter every last non-Roman. Sure, they may have taken up a different language and became Romanized but it's very likely that a lot of Gauls survided and remainded "pure".

    Please show me some examples as I'm interested to know.

    I'm not aware of any Gauls settling in Britain either, but it's certainly possible. I do know that the Belgae settled in parts of south eastern England.

    Well, the Romans considered the two to be closely related actually, and to resemble one another in appearance and language.

    some of the Gauls and Britons would have looked similar but the Gauls would have i think been taller and fairer than the British Celts
