Designed throughout with colourful and detailed illustrations, A Gathering of Eagles outlines in an original and authoritative way the story of the Roman presence in Scotland. It includes new evidence about the earliest penetration of Scotland, new clues to a possible seaborne assault by the Imperial army and reassessments of the contributions of individual legions. The book includes an in-depth analysis of the important Roman fortifications at Burnswark, as well as listing other Roman sites that can be visited across Scotland. This book is part of a newly updated edition of the acclaimed Making of Scotland series produced by Historic Scotland and Birlinn which provides lively, accessible and up-to-date introductions to key themes and periods in Scottish history and prehistory.
