Abstract

The Roman panel report critically reviews the current state of knowledge, and considers promising areas of future research into the Roman presence in Scotland. This is intended to help with the building of testable, defensible and robust narratives that describe and explain the impact of the Roman presence on contemporary and post-Roman societies, as well as, in turn, the impact of developments on the Scottish frontier on the Roman Empire. This will facilitate the work of those interested in the Scottish Iron Age and help set a trajectory for future research. It is structured by theme: Changing Perspectives; The time and place of Roman Scotland; Forts in their landscapes; Supplying the army; Changing worlds; Roman Scotland in the Roman world; and Research and methodological issues. The themes reflect the desire to understand the impact of the Roman presence in Scotland within a wider European context. The document is reinforced by material in an on-line Wiki format which provides further detail and resources.
