He, Claudius

On this day, one thousand, nine hundred and sixty years ago, Emperor Claudius died.  Although other emperors had invaded Britain, it was under Claudius that this country was conquered by the Romans.  The Welsh, however, held off full occupation with a rebellion led by Boudicca.  They finally succumbed around AD 76.  Enjoy a lively Mrs History Romans’ session with some wonderful resources.  Contact us now to book.
