A History of Celtic Britain
Sunday, 7.30pm, SBS One Have you ever wondered what those Celtic crosses are all about? Do you swoon over Enya albums all the way back to when she was just a singer in Celtic folk-rock outfit Clannad? Then tune in to see fiercely proud Scot Neil Oliver explain how, in AD43, Rome invaded Britain and everything changed for the Celtic tribes. Oliver rakes over the coals of the brutal battles that marked the beginning of Roman Britain, discovering evidence of the empire’s artillery and its first roads and forts. And what of the rebellion led by Boudicca, which resulted in the deaths of thousands in St Albans, London and Colchester? But wait, there’s more, including Hadrian and his famous wall.
