Speaking of 55 B.C...
It was an interesting year...
- Consuls: Marcus Licinius Crassus and Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus.
- Consuls Marcus Licinius Crassus and Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus pass the Lex Trebonia.
- Pompey's Theater, the first permanent (non-wooden) theatres in Rome. Built of stone on the Field of Mars, it included a temple to Venus Victorious, a public courtyard, and a meeting hall or curia in the far end near the "Sacred Area."
Julius Caesar continues his campaigns in Gaul, he spreads Roman law and order, and makes the whole country as far as the Channel accessible to trade.;)
May – Caesar defeats a Germanic army then massacres the women and children, totaling 430,000 people, somewhere near the Meuse and Rhine Rivers.
June – Caesar crosses the Rhine River near the modern site of Bonn.
August 22 or August 26 – Julius Caesar commands the first Roman invasion of Britain, likely a reconnaissance-in-force expedition
Of course, more "stuff" happened than was "reported" as is always the case...
Han shot first... ;)
