Roman Britain

When you successfully trace your ancestry in Britain back to Roman times the Roman Britain Organization website at www.roman-britain.org will be worth consulting.
There's an entry for Burgh Castle, a Roman Fort three miles from where I was raised. Learn about Hadrian's Wall constructed to keep out the barbarians. Check out the RBO Meteorological Page  where you'll learn the opinion of Cornelius Tacitus on the English weather, "The sky is overcast with continual rain and cloud, but the cold is not severe" and find a more modern Guide to British Weather.

John,
"When you successfully trace your ancestry in Britain back to Roman times the Roman Britain Organization website at www.roman-britain.org will be worth consulting." Eh, can anyone trace their ancestry back to Roman times? I suppose possibly leaps in that direction can be made through DNA analysis, but no real trees, etc. Unless you know of someone?
