We kick off our 2023 programme of online talks with a foray into 1st century Scotland, in the company of Dr Andrew Tibbs.

“Scotland is one of the few areas of the ancient world that was never completely occupied by the Roman army, and despite numerous attempts, it was never fully assimilated into the Empire. Arguably, it was during the 1st century that the Imperial Army made the most successful inroads into the lands beyond the province of Britannia, reaching as far as the shores of the Moray Firth. However, the full length and extent of Roman occupation in this period remains debated by scholars. 

In this talk, Dr Andrew Tibbs (Durham University) will explore the role and function of Roman fortifications in the Scottish landscape, why they were built in certain locations, and what the overall military strategy was for the Flavian invasion of Scotland.”
