ANNO 55 BC

The ships saled off Port Itius

direction, west , to Dubris.


It was the windy kentish coast that saw them coming first

riding the ocean waves, at the elm their best.


The landing at Dubris was diverted amid fears

Of landing in a storm of javelins and spears.


sailed further up the coast and anchored their ships

seven miles away from the Briton's army on the white cliffs.


Storms damaged ships, opposing winds relenting the march.

Caesar turned the ships back, leaving Mandubracius in charge.


ANNO 54 B.C.


Caesar was back for more, with a larger force than before.

Fought Cassivellaunus in pitched battles and won.

 Camped at Stour Cross before moving on.


Compromises were made and deals and agreements.

The subdued tribes accept the rules and the payments.


With their tools and weapons at hand,

Battle after battle they marched further inland.


Anno 43 DC.

Emperor Claudius arrived, settled by the banks of the TEMZ.
  north of the river estuary


in a place to suit his war assets his generals and cavalry.


In a misty morning the silence was broken by the sound of horn

Tools in hand, the works began and Londinium was born.




Please note:  I am aware about the historians controversy over the foundation of Roman Londinium.
But I am not an historian and I am not writing historic facts.  I am only trying to write some of the events
in poetical style to make it a pleasant reading story for children as well as adults.  Taking in account,
I never studied English at college, I learnt the language by studying computer applications and other courses
like the Persona Trainer course, and before this, studying a travel and tourism course with my basic english.
With a consistent help from google translate online.  Profusely using Wikipedia.
Well I hope you enjoy the reading.
