Read about the continuation of the series here “Britannia Season 3“.
In the distant past, people often fought for territory. Rome waged the most fierce battles in order to increase its possessions. Emperor Claudius decided to send his best commander-in-chief Aulus Plautius to a distant journey so that he could expand the expanses of Rome.
Stepping on the British lands, Aulus faced the first problem – many members of the Roman army refused to go to Britain. The reason was the witchcraft of a foreign land. The fear of men to move forward forced Aulus to resort to cruel measures, after which the campaign was held.
But it was not so easy to conquer foreign lands. Queen Antedia in the most rude form asked Plautius to leave the territory and when no agreement was reached, both sides were forced to start military operations. Violence, cruelty, a lot of bloody scenes fill the series, the air is charged with magic.
On the side of the Antedia is the princess Kerra and the druids, whose magic power surpasses any other peoples of the world. The source of the Druids’ strength is the land on which they live. The completely new format of the vision of magic makes viewers reconsider each series.
