We have already seen how Claudius revived Caesar’s plans for Britain, dispatched four legions across the Channel and established a permanent garrison in the southern part of the island. Camulodunum, modern Colchester, and Londinium, now London, were the focal points of the occupation at that time. Nero continued the work of Claudius, furthermore with a measure of constancy characteristic of the far-sighted and consistent provincial government in the early part of his reign. We have already discussed the energetic and successful crushing by Suetonius Paullinus of a major uprising of the conquered tribes.
