This clip describes the events of Julius Caesar and the Roman army's first attempt to invade Britain. Students could be presented with the events that occurred in this invasion and sort them into a time sequence. Students could use these 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.
