6 – The Heir of Caligula and the Son of Commius

We are rocking through about 100 years of history… from about 54 BCE to 42 CE, and we will cover the events that eventually lead to the Roman Occupation of Britannia. The major characters of this episode will be….

Octavius Augustus - the First Emperor of Rome
Caligula - one of Rome’s more colorful Emperors.
Cassius Chaerea - The Commander of the Praetorian Guard
Claudius - One of the more underestimated emperors in Roman history
Caractacus - Leader of the Catuvellauni, son of Cunobellinus, and all around tough Celt.
Verica - Son of Commius, King of the Atrebates, and Roman ally.

A lot of time has passed since Caesar left these shores and became a human pin cushion. But despite being distracted by internal troubles, Britannia wasn't fully forgotten in the Roman halls of power. In this episode we are going to learn about Caligula's ambitions in Britain, and with the rise of Emperor Claudius the stage is set for another clash of titans between the warrior tribes of Britain and the Roman Empire.
