The Roman army marched into Scotland in AD 79, the first of a series of invasions by various peoples, that was to span the next thousand years. Some were aggressive, some peaceful, but all helped to weave an intricate tapestry of peoples, culture and traditions. The Roman endeavour failed, leaving Britons and Picts in control of their native land, until the Scots, Angles and Vikings invaded in turn. Scotland has a unique inheritance from these centuries of tumult - forts, villages, farms, graves, monasteries and sculpture. Many of the best-preserved remains are in State care, and this book explores the picture that they create of Scotland's invaders.
