The Romans in Scotland


The first session of this course is a discussion of the Ancient Celts. We explore what the term Celt means, and how the Roman expansion came to the island of Britain. In the second session, we explore the many times the Romans tried to subdue Caledonia (the Roman name for Scotland), and how successful those attempts ultimately were. Note: the numbering system extends to the whole program, which is why these sessions are numbered starting with 2.
