Plot

43 year BC. The Roman emperor sent Aulus Plautius to British territory, giving him an army with a thousand soldiers. Since Aulus did not consider it necessary to treat his opponents with respect, he soon realized how wrong he was. Britain was not going to give up their positions, on the contrary – Aulus, in her experience, became acquainted with the mysterious magic of the local lands – the magic of the earth.

This weapon was considered the main trump card of the British, but Rome was too vain. At a time when the Emperor  of Rome, Claudius, decided to send Plautius with a large army into the territory of enemies, the attack was considered far from the first. The Romans managed to study the cards far and wide. But this did not bring them any results, because the earth cannot serve anyone.

The first problem for Aulus was the unwillingness of the Romans to step on Britain. The soldiers knew that this would not end well, so they refused to fight in a battle where the Romans would lose in advance. Avlus had to take tough measures against his people in order to make them attack enemies. But the conquest of this land could not pass unhindered.
