A Romano-British man and a Celt discuss Julius Caesar and the Roman army's first attempt to invade Britain. They give different information and details about what happened. An animated map shows how the invasion took place and why Britain was an important focus for the Romans.

Students could use the events described as a reference point to create a role-play. Students could work in small groups, half as the Celts who are preparing for the invasion and the rest playing the part of the Romans.
