A New Governor for Britain
Contributed by David Verne
The Roman governor of Britain, Frontinus, has been recalled to Rome and is rewarded for his service by being appointed Water Commissioner of Rome, a post only given to trusted men. His replacement, Julius Agricola, has twice served on the staff of British governors. During the transition between governors, the Ordovices, a Welsh tribe, wipe out a Roman cavalry detachment. Agricola acts swiftly after taking command and nearly wipes out the tribe. He establishes a reputation as a capable commander and administrator, and he reforms the corrupt grain tax. He also begins preparing for a campaign to extend Roman control north into Scotland.

Giru, eldest son of King Daru of the Baekje Kingdom in Korea, had been heir to the throne since the year 33. This year, during the 50th year of his reign, King Daru died thus making Giru the third King of Baekje. Little is known about his reign, especially to Western historians. The main chronicla of the era, the Samguk Sagi ("History of the Three Kingdoms") doesn't contain information about the early reign. The first event recorded during the reign of Giru wasn't until 85 AD and recorded that in the first month of spring soldiers were sent to attack the borders of the Silla kingdom, as well as the first sighting of a new star. Most of the events documented during the reign of Giru were a variety of natural disasters, which many viewed as bad omens for the kingdom. The other notable achievment was the signing of a lasting peace treaty with the Silla kingdom in the year 105.
