Kit# 9882 - Briton Chief, 1st Century
Valiant Miniature Kit# 9882 - Briton Chief, 1st Century. In August 55 B.C., Julius Caesar, with two legions, invaded Britain. The Britons fought the Romans on the beach for three weeks, whereupon a truce was signed and the Romans returned to Gaul. In July of 54 B.C. Caesar returned with five legions and landed unopposed. The Britons gathered quickly under their main chief, Cassivellanus, but were unable to stop the Roman's march inland. The Britons sued for peace, and Caesar, having gained the nominal submission of the tribes, again returned to Gaul.
