England: Caesar’s Conquests – Invasion of Kent

In 55 BC Caesar and his Roman Legions sailed from Boulogne across the Strait of Dover on an exploratory mission preceding his conquest of Britain, but he hadn‘t bargained for the Celtii tribes amassed on top of the cliffs scaring the daylights out of his troops. In this feature we reveal how and where he finally got ashore and the results of his first British experience. This is part 2 of 4 in which we cross the English Channel to explore the Roman connection between Nord-Pas-de-Calais in France and Kent, in England.
