Summary
This is the incredible story of how Scotland became the Roman Empire's toughest military challenge. At the height of its power, Rome boasted the domination of millions of people and vast tracts of lands as far east as Syria, Egypt in the south, Spain in the west, and the Germanic wildernesses in the north. In 43AD Emperor Claudius' forces invaded and conquered Britain-but there was one small part of these barbarian lands that wasn't so easy to crush. Through some of Scotland's most extraordinary Roman sites and illuminating new archaeology, historian Dr. Fraser Hunter shows how Scotland and its people defied an onslaught of Roman imperial power for over a century.
