Despite the fact that historians have widely accepted the fact that Julius Caesar led a Roman invasion of Britain in the year 55 B.C., any physical evidence of that invasion has been completely lacking—until now. Archaeologists from the University of Leicester and Kent County Council discovered what they believe to be a defensive ditch at Ebbsfleet, in Kent, with a surprising relic inside. In addition to being a similar shape as one used in France’s Gallic War in 52 B.C., the location is one of the few possible options on the shores of Pegwell Bay, where the invasion purportedly occurred, that could have actually harbored Caesar’s army.
