Between 125 BC - 75 BC tribes from the continent spread into southeast Britain. In 55 BC Julius Caesar made his first expedition into Britain where he was confronted by the Cantii tribe. The following year Caesar led a second expedition to Britain and was again confronted by a Celtic tribe called the Atrebates. After many skirmishes he managed eventually to defeat this tribe with help from the Trinovantes, tribal enemies of the Artebates.
