Book Cover The Romans in Scotland and The Battle of Mons Graupius by Simon Forder (15 August 2019). In AD 77, Roman forces under Agricola marched into the northern reaches of Britain to pacify the Caledonians. For seven years, the Romans battled across what is now Scotland. In AD 83, they fought the final battle at Mons Graupius where 10,000 Caledonians were slaughtered with only 360 Roman dead. How much of this is true? Author Simon Forder considers contemporary sources and triangulates these with the very latest archaeological finds to suggest a new narrative, including a new location for the battle itself.
