13 – Agricola

We’re going to talk about the governorship of Agricola, the Scots, the Irish, and I’m going to say “isthmus” an unreasonable number of times!

Here’s a map of Agricola’s advance. HOWEVER the dates listed are the later of the two dates I mention in the podcast. Many historians think that these dates should be one year earlier. (That will make more sense to you after you listen to the podcast).

NOTE: I made a comment that the legions raided on their way to Eboracum in the podcast. I meant to say that they raided once they got PAST Eboracum. Eboracum and Deva were, of course, Roman towns. At least they were at this point in time. So I think it’s safe to assume they didn’t raid their own people.

  1. You said Ag-GREEK-oh-la! My Latin teacher Mrs. Eley would be proud.
    But neither she nor I will be of any help when you get to Anglo-Saxon pronunciations. Anglo-Saxon was not offered when I was in school.
