Way Back When

Julius Caesar wrote about Britons when Rome invaded Great Britain in 55 BC. He said the natives were wildmen, running around naked, tattooed or painted with Woad. There is a lot of argument about this information.

Rhinos weren’t on hand at the time. However, We thought it would be good to mention Woad’s use as a body paint. It’s not very effective no matter how you mix it up. The idea of an army of naked heathens, all painted blue, is vivid. Rhinos have thought of doing it, but it takes too much effort for a dubious result.

What We can say about Woad is that it smells horrendous. The Britons may have stunk out the Romans; that We would believe. Our version includes a straw wig, which is as valuable as any of this other information.
