The Silures led by Caratacus is a mod by Curlysnail, with contributions from Porkbean and Duskjockey.

This mod requires Brave New World.


The Silrues[]

The Silures were a powerful and warlike tribe or tribal confederation of ancient Britain, occupying what is now South East Wales and perhaps some adjoining areas. They were bordered to the north by the Ordovices; to the east by the Dobunni; and to the west by the Demetae. The Silures fiercely resisted Roman conquest in about AD 48, with the assistance of Caratacus, a military leader and prince of the Catuvellauni, who had fled from further east after his own tribe was defeated.


Caratacus was a 1st-century AD British chieftain of the Catuvellauni tribe, who led the British resistance to the Roman conquest. The first attack on the Welsh tribes was by the legate Publius Ostorius Scapula in about AD 48. Ostorius first attacked the Deceangi in the north-east of what is now Wales, who appear to have surrendered with little resistance. He then spent several years campaigning against the Silures and the Ordovices. Their resistance was led by Caratacus, who had fled from the south-east (of what is now England) when it was conquered by the Romans.

Dawn of Man[]

"Hail to you Caratacus, chieftain of the Catuvellauni tribe and leader of The Silures in the fight against the Roman invaders! Resisting Rome for nearly a decade you exploited gurrilla warfare tactics to outwit and destroy your Roman foes, and led your tribe to numerous bouts of success. Though not a native leader of The Silures, you would take charge of a people you shared the same goals with and lead them into battle against the Roman occupation of Wales. Though ultimatly defeated at the hands of a larger and superior foe, your acomplishments in the face of overwhelmingly negative odds are highly impressive and are to be honoured throughout time. Great Caratacus, the native peoples of Britain have been swept away and forgotten, their memory fading throughout the years. Will you take arms once more and lead the Silures and the other native peoples of this land to victory? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"
