ANCIENTS MONTH: This month is St. Patrick’s Day. But for those of a Classical Age mindset, what was Ireland in Roman Times? It was HIBERNIA. Love that name. According to sailors also known as “the forbidden island of darkness.” Why??? According to The Romans, you couldn’t see past the forests and the vegetation came close to coast in those times. The people were known warriors and the Romans had various plans, but none worked out. Which is good for Ireland. Both Ireland and Iran share in common. They were outside the Roman World. Add China and ancient Kush (modern Sudan) were also on this list.
More Roman stuff coming. And a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to the unconquered people of Ireland. Ciao from MILANO411.com.

What the Isles looked like during Roman times.
The Roman Empire at it’s height. Covered most of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Modern day Iran, Ireland, Sudan, and Ethiopia were not part of it. Also, most of the Nordic countries too. Just trading partners.
The Romans only controlled southern England. Most of the island, though. Ciao…
