What happened when the Romans conquered the Celts?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What happened when the Romans conquered the Celts?       
What happened when the Romans conquered the Celts? After fierce battles with the Romans, the defeated Celts in Gaul (modern France) soon adapted to the Roman way of life. They lived in villas and began to intermarry with their Roman occupiers. The Celts were highly skilled metal-smiths and jewellers, as well as being poets and musicians. The Romans recorded details of Celtic life and culture.

Some of the Celts never accepted Roman rule in Britain. Instead they fled to isolated parts of Wales and Scotland, where they were never conquered. However, the Romano-British carried on a Roman way of life even after the Roman armies had withdrawn back to continental Europe.

Boudicca (Boadicea) was the queen of the Iceni, a tribe of Celts living in eastern England. Her husband was a governor, who worked with the Romans. After his death the Romans tried to take control. Boudicca led a rebellion, which sacked the towns of Colchester and London, until the Roman armies marched against her. The Romans defeated the Iceni and their Celtic allies. Boudicca took poison to avoid capture.
