Year 3

Our class has been named after Caratacus. Here is more information about him.

Caratacus was the leader of a Welsh Celtic tribe from the first century. He battled bravely against the Romans for nearly ten years before being betrayed and handed over as a slave to his enemies by the leader of another Celtic tribe, Cartimandua. He was sent as a prisoner to Rome but was allowed to live there in peace and as a free man after his speech persuaded the Roman Emperor not to have him killed.
