Book 1, Chapter 3, 55 BC to 78 AD – Caractacus – Continued
Upwards of sixteen years had passed since the second arrival of the Romans, and yet the Britons appeared as unsubdued as ever. In spirit, they were more determined to resist, and such was the posture of affairs that the emperor Nero contemplated the abandonment of the island. At this juncture, Caius Suetonius Paulinus was appointed propraetors, one of the most warlike and skilful of the Roman generals, and his arrival was the commencement of a long series of successes, which ended in the full establishment of the foreign power. Ere this was accomplished, how-ever, many battles had to be fought, for the Britons did not yield until after a prolonged and fierce struggle.
