I’ve been following Linnea Tanner’s blog for a number of years now and am a avid fan of her work. Her blog is dedicated to the ancient history of the British Celts and of Rome’s invasion and subsequent impact the Roman Empire had on the various tribes. It is one of the most informative and well written blogs I have read and I look forward to each post Linnea writes.
If you enjoy ancient history and in particular the British Celts, I suggest you do read her blog and follow.
Here’s a snippet of her introduction and the link to her blog post.
Julius Caesar described the tribes in southeast Britain as being similar to Gaul (modern day France). He mentioned that some of the tribal names in Britain were identical as those in Gaul, but does not specify these. Much of the population was divided into named units in the order of tens of thousands of people which were called civitates, usually translated as ‘tribes’ or ‘states’.
