THE UNITED KINGDOM

Great Britain, or Roman Britannia, became the target of great general Julius Caeser, before he was rudely interrupted by political turmoil back in Rome, leading, ultimately to his brutal assassination on the Ides of March in 44 BC. Emperor Claudius returned 100 years later to complete what Caesar had started. 

TARAS' TIPS:

“Follow in the footsteps of Julius Caesar, from his first arrival off the coast of Dover, where he first encountered the Britons.”

Begin your trip by sailing along the coast of Dover, just as Caesar did, until you reach Ramsgate and Pegwell's Bay, where he landed. Then travel onwards to the mouth of the River Thames, visiting Richborough, Canterbury, Rochester and then Colchester en route.
 

Following the path of the Roman development throughout the British Isles, leading you to London, the South West and beyond.
