    Britain was part of the Roman Empire for nearly 400 years from AD 43 to 410 but the association of the two civilisations went back a further century to Julius Caesar’s invasion of 55 BC. The Romans were clearly obsessed with Celtic Britain. The day will conclude with a visit to the British Museum.
