Ancient Britain on film (hill forts, Celts)? Or even earlier (Beaker people, Stonehenge)?
I'm trying to track down period films which are set in ancient Britain, specifically 1500 BC to 43 AD (up to the Romans). There are plenty of films out there about the Trojan War, Alexander the Great, etc. but I'm struggling to find any that are about Britain specifically.
The only thing that seems appropriate is one called Y Mabinogi (or "Otherworld")
, which also happens to be difficult to locate, where we are. The only other option is a low-rated film called Druids
, which is set in 60 BC France -- so it's good for giving historical context, but not a perfect fit.
I'm kind of surprised by the lack of films set in this period, especially because I figured people would at least want to know about Stonehenge and the like. As a last resort I could refer to the end of Tess of the d'Urbervilles, or the "local color" parts of The Wicker Man, but I'd really prefer something feature-length, and ideally something that's actually set in that time period.
(Bonus question: any tips on films about Roman Britain also appreciated, as all I've got that's British is "The Viking Queen
" and "Boudica
", neither of which are very highly-rated.)
