Calgacus

Calgacus, Galgacus, the swordsman. The leader of the tribe of Caledones who were defeated at the Battle of Mons Graupius in 82 by the invading Romans of Julius Agricola. That we know anything about him or his fellow tribesmen is due to the industry of the historian Tacitus, Agricola's son-in-law. To Calgacus he ascribed the noble words 'Solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant; They create a desert and they call it peace.
