About Roman Britain
Read this passage and make questions for the answers below.
Out of curiosity and military need, Julius Caesar set sail from Gaul (France) one August evening in 55 BC to
invade Britain. This first attempt was not a great success, but it was followed by more successful ones,
ending with a full-scale invasion under the Emperor Claudius in AD43. He took elephants with him and
40,000 men.
Over the next forty years, the Romans built market places, public baths and law courts in towns all over
England, and networks of straight roads between them. The Romans did not civilise Wales and Scotland and
parts of south-west England and it was here that the ‘barbarian’ Celtic tribes lived. They sometimes attacked
Roman England, but it was only after the Ninth Legion was lost near York, that the Emperor Hadrian
ordered the building of a wall right across the north of the country to keep out the Scots.
For the next century or so, Britain was at peace, but in the year 406 the Romans withdrew their armies,
which were needed to defend other parts of the Roman Empire. The 350 years of Roman civilisation brought
many new ways to Britain, and almost all the major towns have some reminder of the Roman occupation in
the foundations of their roads and town centres.
1. One August evening in 55 BC.
2. 40,000.
3. Market places, public baths and law courts.
4. Near York.
5. To keep out the Scots.
