Britain – island!

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

Roman Britain
Roman Britain

Julius Agricola, a Roman commander from the 1st century CE, significantly contributed to Roman expansion in Britain and broke the strength of the Caledonian tribes for a generation. After the victorious battle of Mons Graupius Agricola gave the prefect of the fleet an order to sail along the coasts to the north, which made it clear that Britain was an island.

It is possible that Agricola, being confident after the battle, marched to the northern coast of Britain. This is evidenced by Cawdor Fort (not far from Inverness, Scotland).
