‘Britannia is the border, the furthest outpost of Empire, bounded by cruel Oceania on all sides… what lies beyond that border, what crosses and passes unseen… those things concern me more than any barbarian tribe, more than any army of men… yes, you are right to worry about approaching that border, for what waits in Britannia and beyond… is said to be the doom of Rome.’ – Vatia of Rhodes, 54 AD [Blockierte Grafik: https://ksr-ugc.imgix.net/assets/028/102/940/3e741b16c09e8c6669d79fecf4c74cc6_original.png?ixlib=rb-2.1.0&w=680&fit=max&v=1581764019&auto=format&frame=1&lossless=true&s=e7b28a13d3cdddd4257cfd11c1d4af84]
The earliest accounts of Briton the Romans saw were from Greek writers, such as Horace, who wrote ‘the shores of the distant Britons’ lay where ‘the real world came to an end and the world of unknown peoples and mythical creatures began.’ To even approach those shores, Horace writes, the Romans would have to cross ‘the stream of Oceanus, filled with large numbers of sea-monsters.’ And so, the island remained a complete mystery, shrouded in shadow and fog.
