Revealed: our friends the Romans did not invade Britain after all
The history of Britain will have to be rewritten. The AD43 Roman invasion never happened - and was simply a piece of sophisticated political spin by a weak Emperor Claudius.
A series of astonishing archaeological findings of Roman military equipment, to be revealed this week, will prove that the Romans had already arrived decades earlier - and that they had been welcomed with open arms by ancient Britons.

How the Romans liberated Britain
A new series of archaeological discoveries in Britain serves to re-write the history of the Roman arrival in that island. It was previously thought that the Romans invaded and conquered Britain in 43AD. But, the new discoveries attest to their much earlier presence there and their role as liberators against local tribal kings.
