This episode covers the years 54 CE to 60 CE and the major characters are…
Cartimandua, Queen of the Brigantes and unhappy wife
Venutius, King of the Brigantes and unhappy Husband
and Gaius Suetonius Paulinus, governor of Britannia… and probably unhappy as well.
There is a new Emperor ruling over Rome. What impact will this have upon how Britain, one of the Empire’s newest properties, is administered. Meanwhile, how will the tribes within Britain, such as the Kingdom of the Brigante, cope with the brewing cultural conflict between the Britons and the Romans? This episode will address those questions and will also talk about how Romanization was carried out, and the sheer chaos that would have created among the Britons.
