Mons Graupius AD 83 book. Sean O Brogan’s illustrations are a wonderful addition. Duncan Campbell, I believe, would be fairly convincing This is one of many books I’ve recently been reading on Roman Scotland. Although I learned very little new in it, it was easy to cover quickly and is an appropriate length for the 'Campaigns' series that it's intended for. The graphic material is well presented and is fairly varied- using archaeology where appropriate along with evidence from manuscript copies of the writing of Tacitus.

Finally, in AD 83, they fought the final battle at Mons Graupius where 10,000 Caledonians were slaughtered from only 360 Roman . Never again would Roman arms stand on the edge of the known world.

The battle between Roman legions and Caledonian tribesmen at Mons Graupius, somewhere in northern Scotland, continues to cause controversy two millennia later. Where did the battle take place? And did it really happen? Historian Duncan Campbell tackles the "battle at the edge of the world" in this well-written and interesting Osprey Campaign Series book.

"Mons Graupius AD 83" reviews the Roman experience in Britain since AD 40, and the slow struggle to subdue various tribes. The author sketches the slow northward march of Roman control, particularly under the Governor Agricola. His campaign in late AD 83 is at the center of this narrative. The author documents the campaign to the extent permitted by the surviving sources, while acknowledging the various controversies. His recreation of the battle itself is plausible and interesting. The text is nicely supported with period and modern illustrations, maps, and battle diagrams. Well recommended to students of the period.

I learned a valuable lesson about the use of the auxiliaries by the Romans. They had tactical flexibility which enabled the Romans to defeat a larger Celtic force. I had never considered this kind of command decisions to be essential by the Roma commanders.
