Dover history

The Romans first came to Dover in 55 BC (before Christ), under Julius Caesar. But the Celts defended their land. The Romans were successful in 43 AD (Anno Domini), under Claudius. They came to England and took control of the land. They lived in Dover and it was their most important town near the sea.
