Ancient History: The Celts Stood Up to Caesar’s 20,000 Strong Army

The first time Caesar landed on the island he called Britannia, he had about 9,000 men with him. He didn’t stay long and he didn’t make it very far onto the island. A year later, Caesar invaded again but with many more troops, including 2,000 cavalry. This second time he made his way north to about where London is today. But the Celtic Britons had horse-drawn chariots. Their horses were small but they moved quickly. Imagine this, onto the wheels of the chariots, the Britons attached sharp knives. The Romans weren’t too happy about that.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the historic novel The Celtic Prince Available here:
