A Land Divided

Before the Romans came to Britain, the country was divided into a mess of tribes. Uncoordinated, and with no central governmental structure, the island was ruled by minor kings, each having a section of Britain that they controlled. These small kingdoms frequently invaded their neighbors and this left the country in a permanent state of unease. Life was hard, it was unstable and it could be short. The Romans brought civilization and attempted to change this. Sometimes, the British peoples weren't too thrilled with the Roman rule and rebelled—usually though, this was suppressed.

Civilization

Then the Romans invaded in 43AD. and brought a new style of leadership. They built an effective road structure, towns, homes and made Britain into one of the wealthiest and most valuable provinces in the Roman Empire. Rome was THE powerhouse of the ancient world and where it went, it left to change—some for the good, some for the bad. There was nothing that could stand up to the might of Rome—many tried, many even hurt Rome a bit, but in the end, they ALL submitted.
