Hey! Sorry to interrupt. You probably didn't know this, but I'm actually a scholar in early 17th century English literature, and one of my favorite poems from that time, Drayton's "Poly-Olbion," reflects on this exact moment. Although the poem is generally perceived as a celebration of British culture and geography, careful analysis of the tone in several passages reveals a less satisfying message--that British history and culture prior to this invasion, leaving behind few surviving writings, is lost forever (Curran). Bummer, huh?
Wat the FAC!?!
Caesar decides to attempt an invasion on Brittain.
Roman forces are deployed in the water.
In disarray, the legion does not fare well.
Odds are against the soldiers, disoriented and carrying heavy baggage.
