I'm pretty sure I touched on it in the show. If I didn't, I really dropped the ball. ;)So the notion is that there was a strong cultural and political relationship between the coastal britons and the coastal continental europeans. And the Brits would hire themselves out to the continent for military work and then come home with pay, which accounts for the sudden influx of belgic coins (previously it was thought the belgae invaded). This comports with the later accounts we get of the Romans fighting continentals + british support, and how the tribes on both sides of the channel seem to have worked together to try to put a stop to the Roman advance.
