Roman Britain

I was born into a Roman-British family. Do you know what that means? Well, when I was born, areas of the country were part of the 'Roman Empire' which means that they were ruled by Rome.

The Romans came from Italy and conquered parts of Britain but just so you know, the Romans never managed to conquer Scotland and they had to build a wall to keep England and Scotland apart! You've maybe heard of Hadrian's Wall? And they never conquered Ireland either!

The Romans brought many things with them. They lived in villas - and their skilled engineers built roads and towns. Most importantly, the Romans brought the Christian religion with them.
