Pictish and British attacks on the Roman Wall constructed by Hadrian were common and ferocious. For most of the time, at least until the fourth century, the attacks were successfully repelled by Roman arms. After imperial troops left Britannia, the Wall was deserted and became a relic, reminding besieged Romano-Britons of more secure times.
A study of Gallic warriors around 50 BC. The figure in the foreground is a chieftain from Gaul (modern France). He is armed with the very latest in late La Tene armour and weapons. His helmet is the type known as Agen and his sword is the most lavish broadsword that the Celts ever produced. The figure in the background could be from any period either Early La Tene or late. He is armed as a warrior should be, with spear, shield and sword.
