После завоевания римлянами Галлии в середине I век до н. э. Юлий Цезарь предпринял два похода в Британию (55 и fifty four до н. э.). Систематическое завоевание Британии Римом началось в forty three н. э. и завершилось в основном к концу 60-х гг. Британия стала одной из окраинных провинций Римской империи. Романизации подверглись главным образом южная, восточная и отчасти центральная области; запад и Север почти не были ей затронуты. Завоевание было закреплено системой укрепленных пунктов (римские лагери) и военных дорог. Вдоль северных границ были сооружены римские валы. Кризис Римской империи сказался и на судьбах Британии. С конца III в. начались набеги кельтских и саксонских племён. В начале V в. римское владычество в Британии прекратилось. Британия снова распалась на ряд независимых кельтских областей.
