Two thousand years ago the Roman army marched into Scotland. The Celts who lived there at the time were expert fighters and the Romans built two walls to contain them.
From archaeological discoveries at these walls we can get a fascinating glimpse into life at 'the wild frontier', the most northerly edge of the Roman Empire.
The book features a timeline, from the invasion in 54 BC to when Roman rule in Britain came to an end in AD 410. There are illustrations of life in Roman Britain, and photographs of Roman objects held in National Museums Scotland. It also contains an 8-page section of facts and activities.
