Abstract: This paper examines the role of the pre-existing cultures of the British Isles during the first direct Roman contact between the Romans and the Britons that took place in the mid-first century BCE. By looking through a geographically informed cultural perspective of Early Britons prior to the Roman Invasion, which I use in this examination and really has not been approached in previous scholarship. With use of this perspective, a better understanding about the events that took place during Roman Invasion and Occupation, which helps to shed some light about this era in History. Without looking at the pre-existing culture of Britannia throughout history, one is missing an integral part of this time period.
