How Convenient For Archaeology That The Romans Built Camps
Major find in Britain.  While the headline is a bit over the top - Caesar already wrote this bit of history for us - the confirmation is vital.

Quote:First evidence of Julius Caesar’s invasion of Britain could rewrite the history of the Roman Empire

Quote:reported that the ditch itself is about 15 feet across and 6 feet deep. Radiocarbon dating, along with pottery recovered from the scene, place it in the 1st century B.C. The archaeologists also found animal bones and iron weapons, including a pilum—a Roman javelin.
“It’s probably the single most important object that we found,” Andrew Fitzpatrick, a Research Associate from the University of Leicester’s School of Archaeology and Ancient History, told Newsweek. “It’s not a British weapon…this particular style of weapon goes to the southern Alpine region, to northern Italy. The significance is that that’s where Caesar raised his legion; he recruited from that area.”
Taken all together, the evidence suggests that Pegwell Bay was the site of a Roman base during the first century B.C. The discovery will be broadcast November 29 on the BBC Four’s Digging For Britain.

Meanwhile, there's still nothing on hundreds of thousands in the Sinai, as claimed by Exodus...

Yes, hold that thought.

Could be because it didn't happen but Caesar's 'invasion' did.  Actually, what Caesar did was more of a reconnaissance in force.

Good observation. The actual invasion of Britain began under Claudius and continued for the next 50 years or so.

No one has ever found any trace of a Nephite settlement either. And the LDS has spent millions looking.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.
