Caesar's Summer Vacation In 55 B.C. Julius Caesar, then general of the Roman armies in Gaul, decided that it would be a good move to try a little summer invasion of Britiain. It may have been a move intended to gain prestige back home in Rome, but it was a move that made sense.

      The late Republic and early Empire maintained contact with Britain, propping up a system of client states. But did the Romans themselves ever set foot in Britain between Caesar and Claudius, or did they rely on middlemen (like Britons who visited the Republic/Empire, and/or Gauls who visited Britain)?

First invasion (55 BC) Planning and reconnaissance. Caesar claimed that, in the course of his conquest of Gaul, the Britons had supported the campaigns of the mainland Gauls against him, with fugitives from among the Gallic Belgae fleeing to Belgic settlements in Britain, and the Veneti of Armorica, who controlled seaborne trade to the island, calling in aid from their British allies to fight Location: Kent, the Thames, Essex and Hertfordshire.

Revolt in Gaul. As Caesar returned from his second expedition to Britain in 54 BC, there was already trouble looming in Gaul and in his personal life. He received word that his daughter Julia, wife of Pompey, had died in childbirth. The Conquest of Gaul is Julius Caesars firsthand account of the Gallic Wars, fought between 58 and 50 b.c.

Part history and part political propaganda, the book follows Caesar and his legions as they fight their merry way through Belgium, France, Switzerland, and even England. Incidentally, this book used to be much more famous back in the day 4/5. In book two, the Belgae were exchanging hostages to create an alliance against Rome () and the Remi offered Caesar hostages in their surrender (, ).

Later in the book Caesar receives hostages from the Aedui () and other hostages from most of Gaul ().Author: Julius Caesar, Aulus Hirtius (VIII). Gallic Wars Book 5 (54 B.C.E.)

A somewhat odd book that retraces Julius Caesar's conquest of Gaul and landings in Britain, and then looks at the Romanization of Gaul and the eventual fall of Roman Gaul in the dissolution of the Roman Empire - odd because of the narrow focus on Gaul (and to a lesser extent, Britain), but an easily readable and enjoyable book/5.

Gaul was not a unified political entity in Caesar’s day, but rather a piebald agglomeration of different tribes and peoples, unified loosely by language and the mysterious and terrifying Author: Jason Pedicone.

The Conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar is the account, in eight books, of the campaigns conducted by Julius Caesar, Roman Consul, and governor of Transalpine Gaul, in the period from 58 BC to 51 BC. These campaigns were carried out by the Roman legions under his leadership to suppress the rebellions that arose among the Gallic tribes in the area.

The ruler of the Carnutes had been Tasgetius, a descendant of former kings and a man who helped Rome in the past; Caesar had declared him ruler, but after a two-year reign, he was killed by enemies within the state.

The Belgae, for example, headquarter in northern Gaul (opposite Britain) to the lower Rhine river; the Aquitani occupy southern Gaul from the Garonne river along the Atlantic coast south to the Spanish Pyrenees; and the Celtae live in the middle section of Gaul extending from the Atlantic Ocean east to the Rhone river and, in Helvetia, to the.
