Roman Invasion of Britain (1- 3): Onslaught (with Bettany Hughes)

Roman Invasion of Britain ( Part 1 )

The Romans came to Britain and conquered it, ruling the island for centuries.  But why did they come and how did they succeed in the face of the inhabitants’ ferocious resistance? Using state-of-the-art graphic imagery and expert reconstructions of the Roman army in action, Bettany Hughes goes back in time to see how they inspired shock and awe. Hughes analyses the motives and actions of Roman emperors and generals, and of their opponents like Caratacus, a warrior from South-East England who became a hero to the Britons.
