Battle of Medway, 43 A.D.

Battle during the second Roman invasion of Britain. The Britons, led by Caractacus and Togodumnus, were surprised when the Romans, led by Aulus Plautius, crossed the river Medway. The ensuing battle lasted for two days, and at the end the defeated Britons scattered, leaving Togodumnus dead, although Caractacus escaped, and continued his resistance.
