Caesar in Britain (55 BC)

Welcome to Rome Across Europe!

If you are new to RAE, then welcome to the show. If you’ve been around before, then you probably have realized our fascination with the one and only Gaius Julius Caesar.

When we came across a way to share more about the man who was without a doubt so impactful on the Res Publica Romana (Roman Republic), and what would become the Imperium Rōmānum (Roman Empire) after his assassination, there was no way to pass it up.

So, without further ado, we bring to you Caesar in Britain!

Edward Armitage’s reconstruction of the Caesar’s 1st Invasion

 

In the course of his Gallic Wars, Julius Caesar invaded Britain twice. The original invasion, in late summer of 55 BC, would be considered unsuccessful, gaining the Romans little else besides a beachhead on the coast of Kent.

This wouldn’t be the last Britannia saw of Julius Caesar, however. He’d be back for more, and we’ll be there to bring it to you.

Till next time, Don’t Stop Rome-ing!
