4) Brutus the Roman Consul

What if…

Britain was not named for Brutus the Trojan (3,000 years ago) but Brutus the Roman Consul ? (2,000 years ago)

Did some of the old English chroniclers pick the wrong man?

Nennius cites the Roman Brutus who came to Britain with his adopted father, friend and mentor Julius Caesar in the 1st century B.C. And we all know what happened to that relationship.

“Et tu, Brute?” 

No arrows here but another father killed. Oh – and a good thousand years or more suddenly lost from the history of the British Isles.

It’s no wonder we are all confused.
