Map of Southeast Britain and Ceint (Kent)

Map of Southeast Britain and Ceint (Kent) Ancient Places and/or Civilizations Geography

Known as "The Garden of England," today's Kent (called "Ceint" in Roman times) is located in the southeastern part of Britain. 

Julius Caesar, who landed in the area during his first and second expeditions (in 55 and 54 B.C.), referred to the area as Cantium.  In his Commentaries on the Gallic War, he describes the people he found living there with these words (translated into English from the Latin original):

Of all these [British tribes], by far the most civilised are they who dwell in Kent, which is entirely a maritime region, and who differ but little from the Gauls in their customs.
