Sample text:

Moira spread out two open-weave kerchiefs over two blue-glazed bowls as Keita carefully poured the cheese curds into each from the steaming pot, “But we Dobunni liked the Romans didn’t we?”

“As Dobunni we hate war – unlike so many of our neighbors.  When the Romans came we found it easier to let them do as they wished rather than challenge them as many of our neighbors did – both here in Britain as well as our cousins in Gaul.  As long as they were content to leave us alone, to let us worship Cuda in the Cotswold Hills or the Great Mother they call ‘Minerva Sulis’ out in the southwest of our lands, we could tolerate them, even profit from them at times.  Unfortunately, Moira, trusting the Romans could also be risky business – as our cousins in the far east near the shores of the North Sea discovered a long time ago.”


Study Questions

  1. The Dobunni were a Celtic people originally from modern day Spain and driven northward to what is now central England. What happened in the first century before the Common Era that would prompt the Dobunni’s migration to Britain?
  2. The Romans don’t like the peoples they find in Britain. Name some of the differences between the Romans and the peoples of Britain.
  3. Moira and Keita are clearly cooking something.  If you had to guess, what are they making?
