EPPITACOS HEARS CAESAR IS COMING
- The Britons, under the command of Eppitacos, continue their policy of avoiding pitched battles and instead continue to undermine the strength of the remaining Roman legions by disrupting their flow of goods and news. Word reaches them of Caesar’s intentions to bring fresh legions to the island and there is uncertainty as to how to properly prepare.
- Eppitacos is of the belief that their resistance is futile and will only bring about the death of their way of life in the end. His goal, he tells his people, is to speak with Caesar and agree on terms wherein Britannia becomes a client kingdom under the thumb of Rome, offering her soldiers for Rome’s legions and in return they retain their ways. Support is divided, but Eppitacos plans to meet Caesar regardless.
