Roman Period


For centuries. the Romans and Celts dominated Western Europe, finally united under the Roman Empire, which by the second century AD governed Gaul, Britain, and all the rest of Celtic Europe save Ireland.

In Romano-British cities like Camulodunum the Celtic and Roman gods mingled in the Imperial Temple as naturally as their worshippers strolled together in the forums, markets, and baths out­side it. By then, both peoples wore togas, spoke a mix of Celtic and Latin, and learned more from the Mediterranean – like the new ideas of their fellow Roman subject. Jesus Christ.
