Tour Roman Scotland

Tour Roman ScotlandRoman Scotland (Historic Scotland S.) The Romans tried to conquer Scotland three times 2000 years ago. These forays have left their mark, which can still be seen in the form of earthworks, the remains of forts and frontiers constructed by the army. This study shows the effect of these periods of occupation on Scotland and its people.

A Gathering of EaglesA Gathering of Eagles Designed throughout with colourful and detailed illustrations, A Gathering of Eagles outlines in an original and authoritative way the story of the Roman presence in Scotland. It includes new evidence about the earliest penetration of Scotland, new clues to a possible seaborne assault by the Imperial army and reassessments of the contributions of individual legions. The book includes an in-depth analysis of the important Roman fortifications at Burnswark, as well as listing other Roman sites that can be visited across Scotland. This book is part of a newly updated edition of the acclaimed Making of Scotland series produced by Historic Scotland and Birlinn which provides lively, accessible and up-to-date introductions to key themes and periods in Scottish history and prehistory.

Roman Remains Of ScotlandThe Legacy of Rome: Scotland S Roman Remains As an outpost of empire, Scotland played a significant, if unusual, role in the Roman world. The south and east were occupied intermittently from AD 79 to the early third century, while the north and west remained outside Roman control, though certainly not beyond its influence. The conquest was therefore incomplete in Scotland, and military occupation was not followed up by a period of peaceful development; no towns were built, and surviving remains are of camps and forts for the most part. Despite this, the Romans left an important imprint on Scotland. Much documentary evidence sheds light on the native population and archaeological research has led to detailed understanding of the range and distribution of the forts and other sites, and aerial photography has made possible a number of discoveries, filled gaps in our knowledge and opened new avenues of enquiries. Scotland's Roman Remains was first published in 1986. This new edition incorporates a large amount of new material based on discoveries and research which have occurred during the intervening years. It is the only guidebook to Roman remains specifically in Scotland.
