A Land Divided

Before the Romans came to Britain, the country was divided into a mess of tribes. Uncoordinated, and with no central governmental structure, the island was ruled by minor kings, each having a section of Britain that they controlled. These small kingdons frequently invaded their neighbors and this left the country in a permanent state of unease. Life was hard, it was unstable and it could be short. The Romans brought civilization and attempted to change this. Sometimes, the British peoples weren't too thrilled with the Roman rule and rebelled. Usually, this was suppressed.
