Could you please explain why the pronoun 'en' is used in this phrase? I am having difficulty recognising when to use en and what it means in this context. Thanks.
....et en acceptèrent la langue

"Les Gaulois adoptèrent la culture romaine et en acceptèrent la langue"
As I understand it: Les Gaulois adopted the roman culture and language and accepted both.
So "en" is expressing "of it" (de cela) that is the culture, including the language.
Hope this helps.
