The Romans are famous for their well trained soldiers and effective weapons and armour. Throughout the peak of their power, they came up against many enemies, including the British Celtic tribes.

When the Romans managed to invade Britain nearly 2000 years ago, the tribes already living in Britain were not happy about it, especially the Iceni tribe. The great warrior queen, Boudica, lead a rebellion against roman rule. However, despite their strength in numbers, it failed to get rid of the Romans from Britain.
