Join Jackie Bird as she talks to Dr John Reid about his new book, The Eagle and the Bear: A New History of Roman Scotland.
Jackie goes for a walk at the Antonine Wall and is joined by Dr John Reid to discuss Roman-era Scotland. In their discussion, Jackie and John talk about how Scotland – a small, stubbornly resistant nation – saw off a superpower. John reveals how the brutality of the Romans has been overlooked in recent years, and shares his theory as to how the Roman invasions of Scotland have affected the nation to this day.
