This is interesting: Archaeologists find first evidence for Julius Caesar’s invasion of Britain
The first Roman invasion of Britain by Julius Caesar in 55BC is a historical fact, with vivid accounts passed down by Tacitus, Cicero and Caesar himself.
Yet, despite a huge landing force of legionaries from 800 ships, no archaeological evidence for the attack or any physical remains of encampments have ever been found.
But now a chance excavation carried out ahead of a road building project in Kent has uncovered what is thought to be the first solid proof for the invasion….
I hadn’t been aware that Julius Caesar ever invaded Britain.
For novels set during or after the later conquest of Britain, my favorite is Gillian Bradshaw’s wonderful Island of Ghosts. I wonder if she’s ever considered writing one set during this earlier invasion?
