Survive The Jive – Gods of Roman Britain ?

“When the Romans conquered Britannia in AD 43, the Britons resisted at first but were gradually Romanised. This means they adopted Roman customs, latin language and Roman gods, but they also preserved some of their old Celtic ways and even some of the Celtic gods. In this film I look at Romano-British syncretism and the merging of Celtic and Latin deities such as Sulis-Minerva who had her cult centre in Bath. I visited Chedworth Roman Villa and Bath spa to film this, as well as several museums around the world!” – Survive the Jive
