Product Description

These are eight 28mm scale metal 1st Century Ancient Briton Warrior spearmen and slingers. Alternatively you can buy the moulds for these Ancient Britons. Carnyx players and Chieftains are available as cast figures.

Ancient Briton was invaded by the Roman Empire near the middle of the 1st Century CE. It took about eighty years to control the land south of Scotland. The fierce tribes in England at this time were strongly independent and many did not wish to bow to any Emperor. Despite having superior numbers and far better knowledge of the terrain, the Britons could not drive out the Romans. The tactics used by Rome were too disciplined and organised to be easily overcome by waves of charging warriors. Common weapons used included simple spears and hurling stones from small leather straps. Attacking Romans in forests, usually by ambushing was far more effective than open battles in flat terrain as it made it difficult for the Roman cohorts to maneuver properly.

These metal figures need to be primed before painting them. Use of super glue to assemble arms and shields is recommended.

Britain BC Episode 1 ~ Francis Pryor (46:45)
In this visually stunning series, best-selling writer and archaeologist Francis Pryor offers an inspiring new view of Britain before the Roman invasion. He shatters the received wisdom that we were a relatively uncivilised bog people inhabiting a misty island, just waiting to be taught how to live by the invaders. Travelling from North Wales to the Orkneys, the cliffs of Dover to the Western Isles of Scotland, Stonehenge to Maiden Castle, Pryor lifts the lid on what really made the ancient Britons tick and how what we were informs what we are today. Traveling more than a thousand miles north to Orkney and the Western Isles, he explores an amazing array of stone circles, henges and round tombs, revealing that how the ancient Britons worshipped their ancestors and brought death into their homes. Moving down to the big daddy of ancient British sites, Stonehenge, Pryor and other leading archaeologists reinterpret the whole spiritual landscape of pre-Roman Britain - as a passage of a whole community from life to death, expressed in an array of foreboding, impressive wood and stone monuments. By the end of his quest, Pryor convinces Britains to cast aside the national denial of their own ancestors, to embrace them as the remarkable people they were.
