Abstract:

Britain had often helped Gaul fight the Romans. Now that the Gauls had been conquered, Julius Caesar decided to involve the British Isles next. In spite of their gallantry, the Britons' strange customs proved to be a drawback in battle. Every day at five o'clock they stopped to drink hot water. What's more, they stopped fighting entirely for two days out of seven. Accordingly Julius Caesar, a cunning strategist, ordered his troops to attack only at five o'clock on weekdays and all day at the weekend. All Britain was occupied. All? No! One village still holds out against the invaders, one small village in Cantium (Kent). But for how long? Fortunately, one cousin from Gaul by the name of Asterix might be willing to help! And if he were to bring along a barrel full of strength giving magic potion for the rest of the British army?
