by W. S. Hanson

This book describes the Roman conquest of North Wales, northern Britain and lowland Scotland during the governorship of Agricola, AD 77-84, and reassesses the part played by Agricola himself. The author considers how this rapid progress was achieved, how far the Roman governor himself was responsible for the Roman success, the role of Agricola as revealed by current archaeological evidence and how this compares with the biography written by Tacitus, his father-in-law and finally what were the effects of the brief Roman presence in Scotland. This book is designed to appeal to academics, university students as well as the interested layman.
