During my “summer vacation”, I watched the end of King Arthur a couple of times. It made me ponder a hypothetical questions. What if the Romans had continued north pushing to Scotland and across into Ireland and established a stronger presence in those areas. How would it have affected the history of the British Isles. Think about it. Would there have been a St. Patrick if the Romans had made the journey to Hibernia? Would a stronger Roman influence made Ireland, Scotland and Wales more independent of Britain, or would it have led easier assimilation? It is just something that stuck me and now all of you are looking at me like some loon and you have every right to, since I am.
A bizarre but a real question.
