The first Roman invasion of Scotland was led by the Governor of Britain, Agricola. We know a lot about this invasion because it was recorded by his son-in-law Tacitus. However, some archaeologists believes that the Romans came to Scotland before this, and we know that there were invasion afterwards; one ordered by the emperor Antoninus Pius and another led by the emperor Septimus Severus. Roman frontier building had an impact on northern Britain with the Gask Ridge, Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall built in the region. However, the Romans never occupied Scotland for long despite inflicting crushing defeats like that at Mons Graupius. As a result, historians have always argued why they failed to take Scotland and what impact they had on Scotland.
