Francis Pryor examines the history of Britain near the end of the Roman occupation. The first instalment focuses on Britain under Roman rule, revealing a much greater degree of collaboration with the natives than was previously recognised.

Sheep-farming archaeologist, Francis Pryor, presents a historical series which explores Britain A.D, the British national character and the ultimate British icon King Arthur.

Finding new and previously unexplained evidence, Francis Pryor overturns the idea that Britain reverted to a state of anarchy and disorder after the Romans left in 410 AD. Instead of doom and gloom Francis discovers a continuous culture that assimilated influences from as far a field as the Middle East and Constantinople. Through scrutinising the myth of King Arthur to find out what was really going on when the Romans left, Francis is confronted by evidence that confounds traditional views of the 'Dark Ages'. There was also no invasion of bloodthirsty Anglo Saxons, rampaging across the countryside. With new archaeological evidence Francis discovers a far more interesting story.

Besides the aquaduct, sanitation, the roads, irrigation, medicine, education, public baths, law and order, the wine. What did the Roman's ever give Britain?

Verica was a collaborator, The Dubonni were collaborators, The Trinovanti, The Iceni, the Devoni, the Dumnoni, the Silures, The Briganti and others held out till they were squashed. Any attempt to paint the roman invasion as a peaceful sharing of cultures is utter nonsense

Nothing new about how the Romans operated in what they called
Briton. They did that everywhere, look at the local gods and incorporate them into their religion, get some local king and make him Roman and a puppet.
