The Parisii (or Quarisii) were a Celtic Iron Age people that lived on the banks of the river Seine (in Latin Sequana) in Gaul from the middle of the third century B.C. until the Roman era. They are also attested in north-eastern Britain. Their chief city (oppidum) was Lutetia Parisiorum which later became an important city in the Roman province of Gallia Lugdunensis and ultimately the modern city of Paris. With the Suessiones the Parisii participated in the general rising of Vercingetorix against Julius Caesar in 52 B.C. Following their defeat some may at this time have fled to Britain although it is more likely that Parisii had already colonised part of the island before this time and preceding the waves of Belgic immigration.
