Ruins of former Roman walls and castles

Romans were a people who conquered several peoples in Eire, Gaul and Britannia. Velleda a Druid High-Priestess led a major rebellion against the Romans in 70 B.C.

An Irish legend says Conal Cearnach was a prisoner of the Romans in Jerusalem and witnessed the crucifixion of Christ.

They worshiped various deities like Mithras, Venus, Ceres, Vesta and Isis. The Labarum was found adorning banners and shields.

Romans would crown their victors with bay wreaths. Young girls have been known to burn leaves to make lovers return to them. Prophets, diviners and the priests of Apollo considered it to have magical properties. Their cavalry wore overlapping metal scales, a technique copied in Arthur's mail tunic.

In Britannia by the time of Arthur little was left of them. They built castles and walls but their ruins were seen in places like Glastonbury Tor.Template:Fact
