Scotland then saw an age of industry and despoliation. The result was much emigration and obsession with the nation& past which glorified the legends of the Highlander and the Clans. In this century, the loss of identity and drift to the south have perhaps been checked at last by Devolution, the setting up of a Scottish parliament, and the symbolic return of the Stone of Destiny.

According to the Roman historian Tacitus, the Caledonians then "turned to armed resistance on a large scale", attacking Roman forts and skirmishing with their legions. In a surprise night-attack, the Caledonians very nearly wiped out the whole 9th legion until it was saved by Agricola's cavalry. The Romans were tightly disciplined and relied on a short stabbing sword in combat. Their front line was made up of Germanic auxiliary troops from Holland and Belgium, with the Roman legionaries in the rear. Brutal hand to hand fighting must have followed.

Scotland during the Roman Empire refers to the protohistorical period during which the Roman Empire interacted with the area that is now Scotland, which was known to them as "Caledonia". Roman legions arrived around AD 71, having conquered. Roman legions arrived around AD 71, having conquered the Celtic tribes of "Britain" (England and Wales) over the preceding three decades. Aiming to annex all of the island of "Albion", Romans under Q. Petilius Cerialis and Gn. Julius Agricola invaded the Caledonians in the 70s and 80s.

The Romans didn't conquer Scotland because they couldn't conquer Scotland. They beat the Caledonians in battle a few times, a big one at the battle of mons graupius. Bobby S: Oliver Cromwell commanded the forces that successfully invaded Ireland and Scotland in 1650 and 1651 respectively. During two years the English crushed both the Irish and the Scots. Since AD 43 the Romans had conquered southern England and bloodily suppressed Boudica’s rising. However, the fierce Caledonians had decided they were not going to be subject to Rome rule, even if it meant that they had to make a fight of it! It started in AD 79 when Agricola, the Roman governor of Britannia, sent a fleet to survey and map Scotland’s coast.

Sir Thomas Legge, Assistant Commissioner at Scotland Yard, said irritably . If only she could remember a little more about Mrs-or was it Miss-Oliver? V. General Macarthur looked out of the carriage window.

Ten little soldier boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were Nine. Nine little soldier boys sat up very late; One overslept himself and then there were Eight. Eight little soldier boys travelling in Devon; One said he’d stay there and then there were Seven.
