    I was very interested in this book on Roman early medieval Scotland since I know less about that region and era than I do about England This was a fascinating book, though I need to read it again a couple to times to feel like I can converse on the topic with any familiarity The writing style is very good and the author is able to take the few contemporary or later sources available for this era and create a narrative about these distant people Well done.
