Site of Roman military victory over the native Caledonians in AD 83 or 84, chronicled in Tacitus' Agricola. Its location has never been conclusively identified, notwithstanding centuries of scholarly debate. Dozens of candidate sites have been proposed (and dismissed) over the years, however, the general consensus seems to agree upon a location somewhere in northeast Scotland extending north from Perthshire well into Aberdeenshire.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
