I'll try and do a search later today - and probably open a new thread on the subject. I know it was burned more than once - but I'll have to go and look up exact dates. Back soon... :)

Thank-you for those links, Brian! I am researching the English-Scottish border from 400-600 BC, including the Roman Empire! :D

Rome....how I miss her. Those grand old days in which you could conquer a small country by day, and then drink and eat yourself silly at the victory banquet/orgy/celebration later that night.

It was a great link...although I still haven't found written proof that the Romans did not invade Britain but were actually invited, as mentioned by a Historian last year

Aye. Have a dream !
Cheers, Pyanfunk, your maps are a better choice than my written description ( natural feature running from Falkirk (Trimontium) to Perth (Bertha). A series of watchtowers and a roman road run along the crest of the ridge. Recent archaeological research suggests that this predates the Rhein Pallisade by around a Century.
Roman living history groups can also provide information (especially on the military front) as they test replica Roman equipment;

Legio II Augusta
The Ermine Street Guard (Legio XX Valeria Victrix)
The Roman Military Research Society (Legio XIIII Augusta

These groups all have websites, which could provide valuable information;)

Wow - thanks for the links Brian. As my books are centred around post-Roman Britain, all the info I can get about that time is just so helpful. And those links definitely were. Thanks again.
