The Black Romans — Articles on Black History

septimus-ssWas Septimius Severus the 1st Black man to rule England?

Did you know that Black and Asian people first came to the North East in Roman times? Or that England was once ruled by a Libyan? These and many more historical facts were revealed as part of BBC Black History Month.

Early Black History

Emperor Septimius Severus wasn’t the only Black Roman in Britain. There were other African officers, soldiers … stationed on and around Hadrian’s Wall in the 3rd century.

From the 9th century onwards, there are records of Vikings bringing Moroccans to the region.

There’s a gap in the recording of black presence in the North East of England for nearly 400 years until the start of the 16th century.

Black and Asian presence in the North East of England can be traced back to Septimius Severus, a North African Libyan, who ruled England as Roman Emperor between 193-211 AD.

Severus was unique amongst the Roman emperors as being the first Black citizen to hold the highest office in the empire.

Lucius Septimus

Son of Septimus

The most celebrated example of an early Black presence in Britain is the case of the Roman military garrison on Hadrian’s Wall in Cumbria.

A 4th century inscription tells us that the Roman auxiliary unit, Numerus Maurorum Aurelianorum, was stationed at Aballava, modern day Burgh-by-Sands.

This unit had been mustered in the Roman province of Mauretania in North Africa, modern Morocco.

The Black Romans

Genetic evidence

It was recently suggested that African DNA might be found to be present in the local populations near to Hadrian’s Wall.

However, this would not conclusively show that the Black Roman soldiers on the wall intermarried with the local population because of the problem of ‘admixture’.

Admixture is a process whereby the DNA of a population becomes diluted over time and it cannot be shown at what period in time that dilution took place.

African Legacy

During his time in office, Septimius Severus legalised marriage during military service.

There is also evidence that that some Black Romans married, had children, and remained in Britain after their tour of duty.

Skeletons unearthed in a Romano British Cemetery outside York revealed the limb proportions of some of the men suggested that they were Black Africans.

Perhaps they might be considered to be Britain’s first Diaspora people, making Cumbria the birthplace of Black British history?

  1. White people need stop the “black denial” baloney. Blacks being the FIRST people on earth populated its four corners hundreds of thousands of years before Jesus, Columbus or any white colony. Whites evolved in the Caucasus Mountains from Black Albinos. According to science, white and albino is one in the same — recessive mutation of the black gene. All myths, legends, gods, goddesses, avatars and messiahs were Black. The first civilizations around the globe were Black: Ankgor Wat (Cambodia), Egyptians, Chinese dynasties (Xia, Shang-yi and Zhou), Mesoamerica (Mandinka-Shi/Olmecs and Mayas), Americas (Washitaw Nation, Califas, Caribs, Pequots), Nubians, Mesopotamians, Europeans, and Greeks/Romans. White His-story is full of lies. Modern science and evidence disputes white history, which was forged during the Renaissance Period. Black is the dominant race (science) and thus whites have created implants (lips, hips, buttocks), tanning lotions and anti-aging creams to feel NORMAL. Albinism symptoms include pale skin, light eyes and hair, early aging, infertility, low birth rate, weakened immune, genetic disorders, and many other genetic defects. This is science not racism. Listen, Learn, Research and Know the TRUTH. In 1993, the United States returned 68,000 acres of the Washitaw original 1-million-square-mile territory. Blacks are indigenous to the Americas.

    1. while Caucasians are from african decent it has nothing to do with being albino,if you really had learnt about this,you would know the caucus mountains are near the middle east,so it was more like lighter skinned people not white,with blue or green eyes showing up there,then as Caucasians moved to colder climates they got paler,albinos all have light sensitivity,and generally have bad eye sight,that is actual science,.

    2. so true blackmatter, in scientific reality the caucasion is the evolved child of the african man. as the grimaldi(black) moved to colder climates he eventually gave way to the cro-magnun(white) man. and as the cromagnun came to interbreed with the grimaldi they gave rise to the chancellade(asian).

  2. It is a shame that those of darker pigmentation have lost the standard of civilisation they claim to have created. Those with the knowledge and understanding need not argue facts with the ignorant, or you will become like them. They have become the planets parasites, and given time they will nurse the teet dry drying up like leaves.

    1. It wasnt lost it was taken from us by theives who flung us in cages and shakles. Although we have a physical capacity far superior to any white man that wasnt our main focus, being one with the world and our spirt was our thing in ancient times, before you say “why didnt you fight back”. The white man has spent his whole history creating ways to kill and defeat anybody and everything. They have enslaved every animal on the planet for food. They have destroyed civilisations created machines that will lead to the end of the world. They have created a system that suits only them and favours only them

  3. I discovered this site by accident. I just love it. You all act like Internet race warriors. Black civilization vs white civilization. So what? Civilizations are founded by great people. It has nothing to do with the color of skin or continent of origin. What are continents, anyway? Myths or better cards of the world geopolitical power game. Eurocentrism is as bad as Afrocentrism. There is not a single definition of blackness or whiteness. There are populations of both African and European descent or Asian and African descent. Why fight over whom is responsible for founding this or that civilization? It does not really matter anyway. People who quarrel over such matter have an inferiority complex. It is clear that ancient Egyptians were neither Anglo-saxons nor Kongo. Ancient Romans were simply Roman. Why motivates someone to put a “racial label” on ancient civilizations or nations.

    1. If civilization really didn’t have anything to do with color of skin, I don’t think caucasians would have gone to so great length as to whitewash the archeological artefacts proving ancient black civilizations. Believe me, if they(you) could, you would certainly carve the olmec giant heads in order to make them look like caucasians. This website is not about afrocentrism, it’s about Truthcentrism. The fact that you don’t recognize this just shows that you “do suffer” from a superiority complex. Whay shouldn’t people teach their children about who theri forefathers were? American Caucasians until today are still very proud to talk about their founding fathers, even though they were bloody murders that cheat, rob and kill millions of indians…That’s just incredible.

    2. I like to argue over the fact becuse you never hear about black people doing anything constructive in the ancient time when in fact WE done it all first. only a white person would say why argue.

  4. it matters greatly that the truth be known. for to long history have denied the real history and greatness of the black man and woman. so wake up and accept what is real and truthfull. truth thrust to the earth will rise again because lies cannot and will endure forever.

  5. to lie about where they came from,how thy got on the planet from fake heaven adam eve atom an wombman is not fom mans ribs lies ,to hide that he muurs were nobles who raised europe into civilization ,,, ask the bible your own qustion ,its the ones who say they white who are not because of the red ruddy skin who lie,.in america coor of law is a scam ageed to by the people un knowingly .the history books said first they were white they lied an the cause creates the effect simple metaphysics,in europe white was a status not race of land lords owners of lands nobles kings queens rulers of the land ,,freeholder,,,,,,,,,,,,,they bought it over here as race by skin man made to rule the masses dumb down the classes as to the fraud , of color of law,,muurs were white but were the people caled blak today an that has to be hidden that people arent white by skin n the common law but 13 14 amendment only which isnt ver old they only een white since 1863 but ancient thisng wre altered to be micalled white people when in fact it was te people mis called black the muurs ,,since the mus raised the albion masons of europe an were the rulers of europe ,,,,,,,,,,,first they had to create the negro/necro who came only as a slave from africa in 1500s on slave ship jesus instead of civilizing europe as muurs two different positions in hizzztory one low the other high raising euroeans into ffree masonry the proper perpendicular an not getting th credit due with the negro slave from africa only ,,romans were from akebulan /africa also thy were muurs ,study the muurs masons still wear our fez an shriners ask why to that an your question will be answered

  6. I am from an African country where 10 million died and thousands maimed (hands and feet chopped) because of the extreme cruelty and greed of a European King. It is still painful although it happened in 19th and early 20th century. I do not hate Europeans at all but I strongly believe that Eurocentrism is to blame for what happened to my ancestors. Who created the racist ideology of Eurocentrism? Not all Europeans but their Establishment backed by the Catholic Church. It is true that contributions and achievements of Africans and Afro-descendants have been ignored, discredited or hidden just to justify the Word White Supremacy and institutionalized racism against “so called” black people. The truth is History is written by winners and rewritten by conquerors. This is the typical scenario of a total conquest. Men are killed or enslaved. Women are raped and the land is stolen. A hybrid population emerges. Conquerors take the identity and/or heritage of the people they conquer. History is rewritten.

    Africa has been conquered by European and Asian conquerors so many times. Some portions of land (southern Europe, Western Asia) previously inhabited by “so called black” people have been conquered by “so called” white people over thousands of years. It has been hidden for political and ideological reasons. But the past is past. We should learn from History and not use it to hate or condemn every single “white” person. It is the responsibility of African and Afro-descendant historians to discover the truth but also to act and react without hatred towards “white “people.
    History is always been part of the political game. I prefer to learn old traditions and ancient religions. They tell so much about what happened in the past more than history books.

  7. in the west we got muur then 10 million dead since invasion of catholic invaders from europe religion is not that ancient re means two in the be ginning is one ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ligion of fire ,do the sun over ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, i see you call the roman termanology africa an say you prefer to learn old traditions an ancient religions.i am from the first africa the west called now america before it was switched,they lied to us took our land an formed kkk ,,,,,,,,,your wrong to say we hate when we are the hated ,,muurs from africa can answer you better about the east but in the west you bow down or stand up. his tory is a lie an when we say that people say we hate ,,yeah we hate hate especially if its based on a lie that skin is nobility in color of law an the mlk approach was a strategy for the negro in america not land we still control in akebulan,,,to act is shakes sspere or be trained,in civil rights civil rights is not human rights its strawman corporate rights ,,if they put your birth name in all caps its a business whether you know it or not,do they do that i akebulan at jobs /?????like america ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,people come on site not only commenting with fake whiggamoor albion hate,,, they claim that we are not the creators of these ancient tradtions an old religions,,to say how people should re act an not how people shouldnt act who initiate the ignorance an attempt to un set the record straight after clear proff is in the essay.the comments after the essay an lack of respect cause the effect you attack while leaving the cause alone.abandoning our claims is how we lost all we were an the words out of yur mouth are the first ,,we here at rasta livewire say we muurs from west and east hemisphere international muurs our united nations of our nations indiginous aboriginal ,none of us ar from europe but our ancestors civilized europe raising mankind into humannity falling in the processs we cant fall again picking up the european suns however people on the comment page keep referring to us out of position calling names being disrespectful an saying the revealing ancient knoweledge here is a lie ,,that must be dealt with by any means .breaking the spell of chaos magic defending the position requires the devil to get a taste of his own medicine at times when he sends his desciples to do his bidding for him. thhere is no re action with our action preeceeding ,,if,they dont want return fire they shouldnt fire off they mouth first lobbying lies to clear evidence .

    1. You are saying a lot trying to sound intelligent, but the spelling and grammatical errors, let alone the sentence structure looks like an explosion at a word factory. It appears as if you are diving back and forth through time from the past to the most recent to propaganda at best. Basically, everything you have said is being ignored because it is perceived by all as an incoherent ranting mess. Please try a word editing software of some type.

  9. I have always been fascinated by black history, and by African culture. I have a small percentage of black myself.. (one of my great-Grandmothers was reportedly half black.. I have a mop of very thick curly hair.. my sister has typically African appearing teeth..but we are blond or red haired and have blue eyes.)
    Anyway.. to get back to African history, it stands to reason that an ancient race has a huge amount of history behind it. Not just the history of wars and such, but the history of everyday people, their journeys and culture… Much of this knowledge has been lost over time, but it is (and will be) resurfacing. I am looking forward to learning a lot more than I presently know.

  13. The reason black people feel the need to put a label on historical events and places is because anything of greatness which a black man ever achieved is claimed by white people so black people feel the need to make the truth known. The brother that started talking about it being a shame that black people have lost the standard of civilisation that they claim to have created, yes it is, but it happens quite easily. Great ancient civilisations were constantly conquered and destroyed. People fled, people were killed and the knowledge those people had often died with their civilisations. The Hittite empire was a power house of the ancient world and they disappeared off the face of the earth so it happens. Black people are a lost tribe with no real idea of their capabilites and achievements because of the way the world has treated them and destroyed most knowledge of the great contributions black people have ever made but thousands of years of great history cannot be destroyed completely and the truth is still clear for everyone who really wants to learn and open up their minds to the truth. As for the brother that was talking about white people being the descendants of black albinos isn’t right. White people are their own people just like the Chinese and Black Africans. Have you ever seen a black albino ? They still have black features and black hair texture but white people have their own features very different from Africans so that theory doesn’t work out my friend. White Europeans do descend from Black Africans but they are their own people and are just a result of black people moving to colder climates which science actually supports. We are all here because god put us all here, every race is just as beautiful and great as any other, that is the truth. Black people just need to be educated enough to realise this and realise how great they once were and how great they can be again. White people always try to steal black history but God always reveals the truth so the history is never truly stolen, its remains clear and accessable. The Hittites, the moors, the berbers, the ancient egyptians were black as were many others and the truth is clear regardless of white peoples attempts to hide the truth

  14. Hi Wallace, I would like to give you a thumb up for your comment. I would also like to add a little insight that might seem really weird as for the origin of Caucasians. They are the illegetimate offspring of Lucifer. If anyone needs a proof of that, just take a look at all the man-made slaughters in recorded history. You will realize they were carried out by Caucasians. World war 1 and 2, the aborigines in the us, in australia, the slave trade, the crusades, the current world crisis, the list goes on and on. For those of you who believe in the Bible, just check and you will realize that Abel and Cain didnt have the same father. The first was Adam son and the latter lucifer’s(heteropaternal superfecundation); and since the begining caucasians have been murderers and liars; The craziest thing about all this is that, their wickedness is so strong that they are able to oppress a people, and at the same time blame and despise the same people for being oppressed… Quite insane.
    PS1: No generalization; only a general tendency based on historical facts that each one of you can verify. Of course not all caucasians are evil. Here’s the real axis of evil: France, Usa, Australia, Belgium, Spain, Netherland, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland,Germany.
    PS2:As long as this world will be governed by satan and his people, we shall always experience what western caucasians are best at: oppresion, murders, lies.
    PS3: Western caucasians= the 10 above-mentioned countries.

    1. “The craziest thing about all this is that, their wickedness is so strong that they are able to oppress a people, and at the same time blame and despise the same people for being oppressed… Quite insane.” I agree with all that you have stated 100%. And not only that, they will ignore their own history of rape, war and genocide. I don’t know if they are a race of devils but many do behave that way and I do believe for the most part their wickedness cause them to be delusional.

  15. I’ve got news for you all. Septimius Severus wasn’t black; he was North African. At most, he looked Arabic and Mediterranean. I’m not saying this as part of some anti-black agenda. My only agenda is against the misrepresentation of information used here in order to claim that one of the Rome’s emperors was black. To do so – seemingly to drum up publicity for, and add weight to, black history month – is extremely bad practice.

  16. bring ur evidence matthew he was a moor ,noble moor,,,,,wheres ur news , michael angelo repainted all ,rome was called maur first.this evidence is from europe ,is your from america.your news is the same shock denial of those who wont let that illusionary 30 degree freezing aryan spell age go,use the word moor an go from there. saying he wasnt black but was north african an ruled england much farther north theen rome how long had it been called africa ,he is the ruler when scipio africaanus takes carthage with num,idians an takes down hannible an changes akebulan to africa in hizzzztory,193-2011,7 years called africa only so when he waas born it wasnt called africa yet ,ruling england from north aKEBULAN bloodline speaks for itself AS DOES AFRICA ,WHEN U CLAIM RED RUDDY RULED ROME BEFORRE 204 WITHOUT BEING MULATTOES AT LEAST OR AFTER.THERE WAS NO JULIUS[JULY] CEASAR CAUSE IT WAS NO J,SO YOU SEE IULIUS AN THIS WAS LUCIUS SEPTIMUS SEVEREUS = LUCIAS[ VII]-7 SERIOUS,,THEY WERE MOORS WHO RAISED EUROPEAN SONS ,H
    E WAS NO EUROPEAN SON,AS IN AMERICA TODAY 37 MOORS 22 EUROPEAN SONS FROM US THE MOORS /MUURS/ FATHERS OF CIVILIZATION OF MANKINND ,THE MATH DOES NOT LIE

  17. All races stem from the black race and if the white race wasn’t so barbaric they would accept they are our cousins and make peace. But no one shld say blacks shldnt want to knw there history because if history wasn’t so important than why steal it?

  18. OMG! I was just talking to someone about the subject of the “lost” blacks in history. As someone who’s already been reading up on Black Africans and their significant role in European History, this news does not surprise me, there is tons of info out there available to willing minds that will speak the truth about the history of this world and a great number of them are white so this isn’t a BLACK thing, it’s a truth thing and restoring dignity to a people that have been through so much throughout history. Pretty much Africans influenced MOST to ALL of Roman, Grecian, and other cultures with the help of Asiatic influences as well. Unfortunately alot of our history and significant black historical figures have been stolen and put to “white face”. Notice how even if the historical figure was born raised and decendent of Africans he or she is still portrayed as white, (Cleopatra, Hannibal etc.) in everything from our television shows to wikepedia. The only cure for this is to READ READ and READ some more. Dont rely on someone telling you something or an image you see on televeision. Even Alot of Greek historians acknowledged our presence and contribution. It grinds my gears to see White people playing Egyptians or North Africans, even with the walls of the great pyramids heavily decorated with BROWN and BLACK faces and bodies (lighskin, darkskin) egyptians are still primarily played by white people in our cinema. Its the equivilent of someone 1000 years from now saying Africa was A white continent because places like South Africa have a heavy white population NOW.. P.S they are NOT from Africa, they go there on missionary and business missions they occupy the land and, have families and live there for generations, but that will NEVER make them African or af African Descent similar to Romans ages ago going everywhere plating their flag, conquering exotic peoples and claiming foreign territories.

    1. Hannible was from the northern type of africa he was caucasin FACT caucasin does not mean whit ein iclude europeans,north africans,mid easterns, and south asians cleopatra was not black she was half Greek which is caucasin and half egyptien which is caucasin the ROMANS AND GREEKS where white and part mid eastern and remember mid eastern is also caucasin black people in east africa did have a influce on early human civlization but not the biggest the biggect influnce was mdi eastern people who hav emainly ydna j they are a ethnic group by dna maybe u should call them semetic the romans and greeks learned civlization from themselves and mid easterns

      THE EGYPTIENS WHERE NOT BLACK look at egypten art the vats majority are brown 25,000 year old skull the AFLOU man in north africa was caucasin 12,000 year old dna from north africa including egypt was all caucasingroup H and U like north africans today africa does not mean black north africa are not black ok so when ever u hear africa think what part of africa sub sahra is black the moors where not black moors still exsist today about all are in north africa and they are caucasin ancient paintigs or moors show they where caucasin some where black very few because the moors inter married some moor people do live in sub sahra africa and are black becaus ethey inter married those are not the ones that went into spain

      Blacks do have a part in early ciblization but not like what u say every race of people claims their people did everything and is the best well everyone cant be the creater of civilization it is more complicated if any one it is mid easterns who did it the east african black s where defintley connected to early civliztion 6,000 year old bones in sumeria syria show mainly caucasin mtdna groups like mid eastern today but a few had sub sahern black haplogoup L2a which is mainly in sudan which shows they where connced with sumerians there was even one bone that had east asian siberian mtdna moses wife in the bible was ethopien the egyptiens knew who black people where and had alot of contact with them they the nubiens, cushites and ethopeins where just ordinary countries and where aprt of the early civlization but not like what u say

      when it turned out king tut has ydna R1b M269 which is a western european version of r1b and only in europe people called it a raciest lie but when Ramuses 111 turned out to have ydna E1b1a which is the most popular group for african americans people where like wow thats cool many north africans today have ydna E1b1a Ramses was not balck look at his paintigs he has stright hair and brown skin but he probably was part black

  19. this is pathetic the romans where white its a fact look at the statues face it looks like a white person sure they made his hair curley looking that was the sytle ask any non africentric expert he would tell that person was european look at 99.9% of yroman art they are all european looking sure romans did have alot of mid eastern blood thats how those non european haplogroups got into england i am sick if hearing the EGYPTIENS WHERE NOT BLACK THE BERBERS WHERE AND ARE NOT BLACK THE MOORS WHERE AND ARE NOT BLACK sure some of the moors who could have been imigrants from sub sahra africa where black but the majority where not the NUBIANS,CUSHITEs, AND ETHOPIENS WHERE BLACK and they did have a impact on the ancient world in nubia today the most poular ydn ahaplogroup is J which is a mid easterngroup showing they inter married 6,000 year old remains in sumeria syria show mixed syrian and black people the ancient black people in east africa where definitley a prt of the begging of human civlization the greeks and romans knew who black people where so did the jews but the romans,egypteins,greeks,sumerians,jews where not black maybe some egypteins where part balck but native egyptiens where not hannible was not black he was north african north afrivan does not mean black north africans are most closely related to europeans and mid eastern they are apart of the caucasin race and caucasins are native to north africa they did ot arrve their like 10,000 years ago the AFLLOU man is a 25,000 year old caucasin skull in north africa and 12,000 year old remains in north africa showed that all of the people belonged to caucasin mtdna groups H and U likenorth africans today

    u cant really tell if someone is black by their leg bone maybe the skull and westafricans including african americans are very diff from east africans like sudanes the type of sub sahren africans romans knew where not west african they where east african uU HAVE NO EVIDENCE AND TEHRE ARE NO WRITTEN RECORDS OF BLACK ROMAN SOLDIERS MOST WHERE ITALIEN LATER SOME WHERE GERMAN AND SYRIAN OR EGYPTEINS WHICH IS NOT BLACK

    1. And what defines a Caucasian? Every black skinned person I have ever met from the middle east and north africa is a Caucasian? So then, did these black skinned people move out of the caucasus mountains into north Africa and the middle east while the pink skinned ones moved to Europe? if i understand correctly, pale face Europeans concocting a two race theory? One race of caucasian/white which includes everyone who can proclaim their genetics above the Sahara desert and anything below the desert is black African and thus subhuman, so in actuality, pale pink face Europeans cannot accept there were more advanced civilizations than themselves who did not have pink faces so to get around that they changed the definition of caucasian to include the brown/black skinned people north
      of the Sahara. this another example of pale face insecurities. Are far east Asians caucasians, too?
