The boat was launched from Ostia harbour in Rome. The Roman soldiers were due in England in two weeks time. A ripple of nerves shot through the soldiers as they passed Greece, when they realised what they might be up against. Throughout the journey, soldiers discussed battle plans and slowly but surely realised all of them felt the same about what was lying ahead. As the soldiers came up close to England, people on the shore wondered who they were and why they were there. Suddenly they all fell over at once. The boat they were in had hit a rock close to surface.
