A Romano-British man and a Celt discuss the invasion of Britain by Julius Caesar. They give different information about the attempt by Caesar and details about what happened. A map image highlights how the invasion took place and why Britain was an important focus for the Romans.

The clip would be useful to allow the children to investigate the reasons why the Romans failed to invade Britain on this occasion and the reasons why the Romans wanted to invade Britain. Students could research these reasons and then create their own role-play from the point of view of the Celts or the Romans.
